Imagine No Countries

by Kim Petersen

Most progressives would probably agree that in many contexts "blind, unquestioning faith" in a president or other person is "foolish and obsequious." In this respect, Ken Sanders was right on in his recent article "Love Your Country? Demand Impeachment." Sanders considered such faith to be "contrary to the fundamental principles of this country, as set forth in the Constitution." Sanders instead advocated patriotism, which he defined as demanding "truth and honesty." To be brutally honest, "this country" that Sanders loves is an occupied, ethnically cleansed, annexed, conquered, or illegitimately purchased landmass referred to by the colonialists as the United States of America.
