What a beautiful quote and I do think there are a lot of people with this warped view of patriotism. These are the same people who think that sacrificing rights for safety is okay. That killing and torturing for safety is acceptable.
Where's the humanity?
I bet some of the would reply, "To hell with humanity! I want to be safe!"
That's just my assumption though.
I love my country but I'm not willing to sacrifice my integrity/morality/humanity or hers for some twisted sense of security and feeling of being the most powerful nation in the world.
I'd rather we be the weakest if it meant we at least had our integrity and strong sense of moral values to be proud of.

I was trained as a language specialist by my agent for -- to find personal
information, and one of the things that we was taught in the FBI -- everyone was taught in the counterintelligence -- that the target U.S. persons, whether they are in Congress or executive branch or whatever, first go by foreign entities to what they refer to as hooking period, and it was very common; it's a very common way of trying to find vulnerability, and that is sexual, financial, any other kinds of greeds, and it was -- it was done a lot, was being done a lot, and in some cases certain people from Pentagon would send a list of individuals with access to sensitive data, whether weapons technology or nuclear technology, and this information would include all their sexual preference, how much they owed on their homes, if they have gambling issues, and the State Department, high level State Department person would provide it to these foreign operatives, and those foreign operatives then would go and hook those Pentagon people, whether they were at RAND or some other Air Force base.
And then the hooking period would take some times. Sometimes it takes months, sometimes one year. ...
