This Persuasive speech “Patriotism or peace?” persuades us that patriotism in not just unthinking jingoism. It says we are all citizens of the same world and that our patriotism should be to that rather than a particular country or area. It questions why we support a particular team or claim a bit of land as ours. It says we must question our governments and their actions and not believe in them unthinkingly. Above all, it makes us think about our own definition of patriotism. Our Persuasive speech “Patriotism or peace?” is summarized in the stimulating poem with which we end it.
