The Unique Love Of Family

Ask any ethnicity what their national culture is all about, and they will all answer with some variant of “love of family”. Or else it revolves around eating a lot, or asking the man in the sky for stuff. So everyone’s national culture, which they take such pains to differentiate from all other cultures, is in fact just the same as everyone else’s. Such proud nationalists suffer from the narcissistic delusion that love of family is unique to their own ethnicity. For some strange reason, the political capital of this outlook seems to be, not some Balkan backwater but the United States.
