Nationalism is born to a country, not to oneself. Yet, everyone has the right to a descent living. As one said, Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime. Shortsightedness in a granularity of a day-to-day living is NOT patriotism. True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.

Sorry, Country comes first, provided leadership is same.

Nations are shareholders in a corporate called a "country" . As such, I believe shareholders would go the extra mile and support their executive management, should they feel and see executive decisions that protects their interests and provides a substantiated ROI. Similar to executives, Cabinet should present to the public their own rescue plan that first and foremost applies to them before subjected to the masses. Obviously if any one of us is a shareholder in a company that management dispenses and swindle its assets and funds would be asked to resign. People are shareholders and not a disposable depreciated assets. I believe subjects will understand the soar treatment that is essential, conditional to a clear belief of change to be adopted by the Cabinet. Be closer to your shareholders and listen.
