Ideas for Patriotism

Here are some tips for how to love your country, and advocate things that make it functional and whole.

  1. Support health care for someone who’s sick, or may get sick and be unable to afford the cost of their care (so, for everyone).
  2. Demand that soldiers, veterans, and their families receive the support services they deserve. Demand a stop to prioritization of war and the marginalization of the humans who fight it. (Better yet: demand a stop to war. Period.)
  3. Recognize poor-shaming and bootstrap-related arguments as the bigotry that they are. Don’t participate, and try to raise awareness when you see someone who is doing so.
  4. Fight the ongoing wage gap. Which yes, is still very much in play.
