Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
Heroism on command, senselessviolence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism – how passionately I hate them!

Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.
I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.
