Superficial Patriotism

Merriam Webster defines patriotism as the love for, or devotion to, one’s country, while the Oxford dictionary sees it as the vigorous support for one’s country. defines it as a form of national loyalty.

I’ve always like to observe how some Singaporeans only express patriotism during National Day celebrations. Other than the day itself and the days leading up, some Singaporeans are all “anti-government” and “my train breakdown ‘cos government never make properly”.

I think that this is an interesting topic and I feel that it is a very current social issue. It is unfortunate that this is so when in a perfect world, Singaporeans should feel proud to be Singaporeans every day.

I wanted my work to get Singaporeans to reflect on this behaviour and think introspectively about why they do so and if they should change.
