Abstract:     
This essay presents a contrast between four contemporary political philosophies – neutralism, post-modernism, pluralism, and patriotism – and argues that the latter is superior given how it relates to the various political ideologies (liberalism, conservatism, socialism, nationalism, feminism, and so on). A new, patriotic conception of the political spectrum is then advanced, with its basic terms reinterpreted on the basis of how people should respond to given conflicts: those on the left would have us do so with conversation; those in the centre with negotiation; and those on the right with force.
