‘Instead of recognizing himself (..) as a free man, who is guided by his reason, every man, under the influence of patriotism, recognizes himself as the son of his country and the slave of his government, and commits acts which are contrary to his reason and to his conscience.’

— Leo Tolstoy, in ‘Patriotism and Government’ (1901)
