In Spanish: Patriotismo y Patrioterismo

Esta es una parte que me gusta mucho de un artículo muy bueno:

Me pongo a pensar en qué se diferencian el patriotismo y el patrioterismo, y me parece que es en lo mismo que se diferencian lo popular y el populismo, o la libertad y el libertinaje. Son rebajas de sentido, aplastamientos semánticos que vuelven lo presuntamente elogiable en criticable.

About martisima

After over 50 years of teaching literature to undergraduate and graduate students, I feel I have earned my retirement (it happened when I was 72, five years ago). I do miss the classroom, however, but not the meetings and all other requirements of the profession. I love teaching, and wish I could still do it. But now I read for pleasure, and watch films, and listen to all kinds of music (no TV, though). I love to travel, and hope I can resume doing it soon. I need to get over my health issues caused by thyroid surgery three years ago!
