Samuel Johnson said in 1775:

'' Patriotism - the last refuge of a scoundrel! ''.
True way back then - as true today!
Fools - still fall for all of that - crap - worldwide!
Kill in the name of patriotism! Love of country!
Wars have been declared - for patriotic reasons!
Thousands - millions - died - killed - murdered!
For in - for - patriotic reasons!
In France and Belgium - lay the graves of millions!
Who were sacrificed on the bloody altar of patriotism!
Thus it were so in Samuel Johnson days - so it is today!

So easy to manipulate person with that word! You are right it is for scoundrels and the fools that fall for it. Good reminder for those wrapped in their flags.
