National Pride, and Humanhood

We can see that to be members of the human race is the thing to take pride in, not in petty national differences. But in the world in general people can’t do that, because so much painful emotion has been installed around their national  oppression.

We have to first contradict the invalidation of our national pride and discharge that, before we can reach for humanhood.

National Pride, and Liberation,” in A Better World
