While I am an American, I don't feel this with the strength that our ancestors seemed to have. National sentiment was once a strong current that reordered the globe. It seems to be ebbing away from us now, leaving us on unfamiliar shores waiting for the belonging to return. Geographical identities no longer fit right, snug where they shouldn't be and baggy everywhere else. I'm looking for a new social identity to wear, one that fits, one that feels natural and meaningful enough to become a way of life.
And by the way, I know better than to try and buy a solution. Real social groups, the ones that matter, don't make anyone rich. They are not a business. Fuck your business.
