A thought
If one believes in the basic principles of a free market system--that is to say, believes that people on the whole know better what to do with themselves than the government does--then intense patriotism is absolutely essential in any international setting. Otherwise, representatives in international circles, be they the UN, NATO, or ambassadors in general, will seek their own good, whatever that may be, rather than the good of the country they represent.

Just a thought.
