在马来西亚，前首相 Tun Mahathir 也说第一个环绕地球的人是麦哲伦船上的一位马来水手。（麦哲伦本身死于菲律宾。）总算马来西亚人不太“爱国”，老早把他的理论忘掉了。

Koreans are the most patriotic people in the world. They are also the angriest people in the world. It is said that on Korean streets, virtually all cars are made locally. Any Korean who drives imported car will be condemned as “unpatriotic”. I have watched a Korean drama starring actress Kim Hee Sun. In the story, the character played by Kim also advocates “buy local goods”.
The patriotic – or some say nationalist – traits exhibited by Koreans are a result of Confucius’s teaching. Ironically, Confucius was himself “imported” from
Buddha Gautama was, of course, not a Korean. But Koreans invented a story to satisfy their national pride.
