VIDEO: What is patriotism?

Here's a special Fourth of July message, big band music, fireworks, and all.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

People tend to talk a lot about patriotism around the Fourth of July. That's why, in a special Fourth of July video I created with MoveOn, I lay out five basic principles of patriotism, which are pretty darn important to heed always, but especially in this high-stakes election year.

Please watch this two-minute video now (big band music, fireworks, and all) and then share it with your family and friends. (And don't worry if you're not on Facebook. We've added a YouTube link below!)


True patriotism isn’t about putting up walls around our nation’s borders. And it’s never fueled by hate-filled or divisive rhetoric.

Patriotism is about coming together for the common good. It's about investing in our nation and always celebrating the "We" in "We the people."

Thank you for watching and sharing this special Fourth of July message from me and MoveOn.

Have a happy and safe weekend.

—Robert Reich
