My favourite quote on the subject is:

"Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel"
- Samuel Johnson (1774)
Some of my patriotic Swiss friends have claimed in all seriousness that if society broke down and borders didn't exist anymore, as Genevans they'd still feel more solidarity with someone from St. Gaalen than with someone 2km away in France (despite speaking terrible or no Swiss German). My reaction was the same as when someone brings up Jesus, "Oookay, have fun with that notion."
