I don’t think being performance of patriotism equates to a greater love of this country. I prefer our more subdued approach to patriotism than the overt displays from the USA.
Being more performative doesn’t mean you love your country more. Like the boyfriend who splashes out on his girlfriend and posts every loved up photo on social media doesn’t necessarily love his partner more than couples who are more private. It doesn’t make the former more longer lasting.
