Is It More Important To Have Love For Your Nation Or For Your Fellow Humans?

I would say my fellow humans, but so many times nowadays it seems like all anyone cares about is doing things in the pride of their nations and I've noticed that so many of these people forget about the wellbeing of the people live in their nations. It breaks my heart for people to turn a blind eye to the people suffering in their countries for the purpose of feeling as if their nation is the greatest. But maybe thats just an American thing, I really hope it is.

The problem is that suffering in America happens more behind closed doors, in cars...unlike the suffering in the open streets as in India...or Africa...
