Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2018
Debate, discussion and discourse at the Edinburgh Fringe
The Problem with Patriotism
Do you love your country? Does the sight of your national flag fill you with pride? Whatever your nationality, patriotism is a hugely significant part of modern life, influencing everything from the cars we buy to the politicians we vote for. And yet we rarely take the time to question it. So join researcher David Mountain (The University of Edinburgh) as he explores the many problems with patriotism. Bringing together evidence and arguments from science, philosophy and politics, he’ll reveal why patriotism is illogical, dangerous and a complete waste of time.
