Intellectuals consider Patriotism beneath them.Tropeworthy? Needs Examples Better Name
A work with no intellectual patriots has multiple intellectual characters who are all unambiguously unpatriotic. There are multiple reasons for this:
- As intellectuals they've discarded patriotism seeing it as negative.
- They're scientists who are reliant and relied on by scientist from around the world. Such interconnected support doesn't lend itself to people who think a certain set of people are better than everyone else.
- Dictatorships who use patriotism to give themselves respect while demonizing others tended to have this philosophy. Many intellectuals were hunted or banished to Ivory tower ghettos.
