Patriotism - What Does It Mean?!?

Well, with all the nonsense going around lately, the editor of The Star chose to comment on this topic for his weekly On The Beat column, which I feel truly expresses what Malaysians really feel about the matter. We will stand up for our country and truly show our patriotism when the need arises, not just merely through standing at attention when the national anthem is being played.

Of course, there are still those who truly believe the campaign is very beneficial to the rakyat when unnecessary public funds is being used to promote and carry out this campaign, such as the CM of Penang who said leaflets bearing lyrics of the national and state anthems and other patriotic songs will be distributed during government functions from August. Go figure!
