It’s Not a Gang, It’s a Club

The fawning over the warriors who have provided me with the freedom to write these words continues in its overwhelming pace today.  I previously have offered my thoughts about this glorification, and the psychological / religious needs of those doing the fawning.  But, as the praise continues, I think it is appropriate that I return to this topic.

For this, Americans sing praises – in church and arena:

They shoot without shame
In the name of a piece of dirt
For a change of accent
Or the colour of your shirt
Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colourful rag is unfurled

A gang or the protector of my freedom?  In the eyes of the one on the sending end of the beating, is there a difference?  How about in the eyes of the one on the receiving end?

  1. The problem with internationalists is that all the prominent ones in today's world are trying to "harmonize" the various governing systems. Decentralized and diverse solutions are not tolerated. Everything must be regulated according to the harshest regulations available. No escapes are permitted.

    Internationalist secessionism would be a nice change. Instead of interpreting internationalism as being a plea for unified governance of humanity, let every people rule their own community according to their own ways. Be a citizen of a secessionist world! If jealous elites did not violently quash such things, much progress could be freed.
