So the best interest of the poor downtrodden prole is not to support his own country is it?
That's an interesting point of view - care to elaborate?
Not the OP, but I see it as in the interest of the "prole" to seek to advance the rights of the individual over the state, to insist upon having the right to not just disagree with the state but to change it if it conflicts with the rights of individuals. For this to happen, it requires that the proles be informed of the actions of the state, and to have both the will and the ability to effect changes. When people realize that the only "state" that matters is this wet pebble we have to coexist upon, as I hope the people will sometime realize, then the states are the entities that will need to be disbanded.
