Patriotism or manipulation?

A quick note before going to work (bold is mine). I’ve just read something I want to share:

“You must report anyone who might know about these rebels. It’s your duty.You must listen, then report. Even if it’s your parents, your uncles or aunts. Because none of them loves you as much as your country does. Your country comes first, remember! I will be proud of you, and so will your country.” (*)

For some reason, it remembers me the SS during the Second World War. History is repeating. It is amazing how they try to manipulate children. 😦

(*) read from “A Thousand Splendid Suns, Part Two”.
