Typically brainwashed by the education system....

The dictionary definitions are typically:

Love your country
Support your Country
Defend your country from enemies - domestic and abroad

emphasis mine, but typically left out of every day rhetoric.

. Try listing a bunch of things that a patriot does (eg, public service, military service). Sprinkle a few what-a-patriot-doesn't-do's (eg, stay quiet when the gov't is wrong) amongst them.
. Along with the writing experience, part of the lesson is to think about what patriotism means to you. Have you ever watched the flag go by in a parade and gotten choked up when you thought about how many ppl gave their lives to defend the ideals behind that flag? Or felt shame over something your gov't has done? If so, relate these feeling to your audience.
