The act of allegiance to a cause without clear thought, a complete one sided agreement of committing loyalty.
One of the biggest brainwashing techniques used and exposes the true gullibility of people to accepting such nonsense from their government.

Most obvious in the United States of America. See Brainwashed.

People are brought up with the thought the U.S. is clearly better than everyone else in the world and all that crap about how it's the "greatest country in the world" even when the people saying this have never been outside the U.S.

No matter how many bad things our government does, they will defend them because, it's their home country. We saw this when the people didn't think twice about the Patriot Act.

This is why people in America let such war criminals stay in power and don't even bother trying to shake the corruption. Their indoctrination through youth and don't even think about it, they see everything completely one sided. They will always make excuses how this is the land of the "free" and it's not a communist country as if that means the U.S. is completely free of corruption and imperialism.

Governments are not the only example, it happens in religion too. Especially if you are raised in a specific religion and taught the mindset, it is clearly blind patriotism when thinking one sided and not looking at the full table and thinking rationally and having second thoughts.
Blind Patriotism in a nutshell

Guy One: "America is the greatest country in the world!"

Guy Two: "How do you know that?"

Guy One: "I just know it is."

Guy Two: "Have you ever been to any other countries in the world?"

Guy One: "No"

Guy Two: "Then how do you know America is really the greatest country in the world?"

Feb 27 Word of the Day
From STEM, an abbreviation short for "Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics", a STEMlord is a pejorative term for a particular kind of person who has studied in these areas at university or works in these fields who holds a pretentious, condescending attitude to anyone who has studied in any other fields, particularly the Arts and Humanities. They typically believe themselves to be more "intelligent" and "rational", while generally remaining incredibly ignorant outside of their areas of expertise and having the charisma of a rotting pig's backside.
"Ugh, I wish Reddit wasn't full of STEMlords the entire goddamn time."
