Plamenatz examines Rousseau’s views on patriotism and on the requirements he imposes on community that now seem indefensible and illiberal but which arise from his view that social man must be brought to achieve moral freedom. He failed to see that patriotism can threaten individual freedom and was wrong to insist that citizens can achieve freedom only where they share the same ideals and standards.
