smug - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Your passport is your national family membership. It comes with a food card and a right to housing. As all successful tribes in history did, so we do too. When you are one of us we feed and house. That is what membership brings and it makes us a nation. Now we have a national health service that works and not simply hospitals to mop up the sickness caused by stress and inequity. The difference is night and day. Our nation really works. Our society really works. Other nations spend their money on police, prisons and bombs... what we do is actually cheaper. So, yeah, we feel pretty smug about it... one could say... exceptionally smug.
