China Patriot Poseurs
媒体来源: 中国法律博客

ChinaGeek Charlie Custer dips into the patriotism-speak on the Chinese Intertubes:

A lot of people talk a big game on the internet, and Chinese people are no exception. When it comes to the topic of patriotism, especially, the gloves of rhetoric often come off and discussions can quickly descend into a cacophony of name-calling and fallacious assertions. Zhao Weilu, apparently, has had about enough, and wrote this post classifying the eight characteristics of fake "patriots" on the internet.

The rest is here.

I was originally going to comment on the substance of the post, but as I read through, I realized that the content dealt with some issues that I consider to be the minutiae of patriotism (e.g. opposition to the West, or how old is Chinese civilization).

All well and good, I suppose, since those are the actual references used by self-styled patriots here.

For me, it's all beside the point. Sorry if this next part comes across as insufferably pseudo-intellectual, especially on a Monday, but let me set some mental ground rules.
