And one of the questions was...

"True or false: no one chooses their birth of country so it is foolosh to be proud of it".

Which would you have chosen: true, or false?

I'm kinda neutral. People that are proud of their country of birth might piss of people that aren't. But there's nothing wrong with having pride in small amounts.

I believe that it's only natural to be prideful in the things you have. If you don't appreciate what you do have and at least pretend that you like it, then you are what we call "bitchy," the kind of person that complains about everything

I did. I choose New Zealand instead of Holland as my nationality. So I can be proud of it.

Is this from the Political Compass? And I am sort of neutral. As long as your pride does not influence how you feel about those from other countries, or make you feel above, I guess it is fine. I myself am not proud to be an American.

I'm SO proud to be Indian. But I'm not so proud to be American.

I was born and raised in America by a fully Indian family.

You should feel very proud of the country you were born in. Indeed, you are one of thousands and thousands of people that are born in that country every day, but because YOU were born in that country, you should feel very proud XD. Yeah, it's nonsense to feel proud that you were born in a certain country. However, that does not mean that you should hate the country you were born and/or raised in, it just means you shouldn't brag about exiting your mother's uterus on a certain country Very Happy

In my opinion, it wouldn't really matter if you hated it, since you didn't choose it.

Yes, I did it. I believe I chose that I was slightly against feeling proud about the country of birth, but I was not extremely against it.
