“Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I can’t help but think that before Israel, we had no enemies in the Middle East.” Fr. John Sheehan, S.J.

Perhaps I need to clear something up. Yes, this is another "it's about me" thing.
I am not a patriot. I never have been. I never will be. I just live in a place. They don't like that. The TPTB. The reason they don't, is that to all non-patriots, war, taxes and arbitrary laws are just forms of control over a region. Nothing that brings "a lump" to the throat. When I see an amerikan flag, all I feel is disgust. I don't want to restore this country to some mythical vision of the land of freedom that are forefathers fought and died for, or any of that brouhaha. If they fought and died for anything other than their own personal protection, they were fools. They were chumps. Of course that's the way you make a country. You get a bunch of chumps together in one area, and you tell them quickly on that they have enemies. Tell them they are special. Instill pride. A war with someone is soon to follow.
All patriotism is...is war. War assures wealth for the already wealthy. That is what this world needs to awaken to. Screw your flag...screw my flag. Screw the concept of enemies, other than those that would make a shekel off the death of some poor chumps and their children. They are the only enemy. Why can't the world see that? I guess it gives some pleasure to too many people...this patriotism shit.
I couldn't care less if they bombed capitol hill tomorrow, tore up every copy of the god-damned constitution and used old glory as toilet paper. Really. And neither should you. When human life and happiness take a back seat to allegiance to some damned piece of cloth that a cult of elitists sewed together...we as a species better start devolving back to the beginning and start over. C'mon. WHO the fuck cares if we decide to give the whole damned country back to the Indians and Mexicans? I mean really. No more malls. No more jewish teevee. Sounds like a hell of a plan to me. And I am not just playing devil's advocate here. This is serious.
A child can see this. Why can't billions of adults? We are animals that require food and shelter. Other than that, what is the possible use of patriotism? Or countries at all? Yes, I firmly wish for a "New World Order". One in which the purveyors of all this anti-human filth that we call politics, get lined up against a wall and shot. Then the rest of us can get on with "Evolving". But...you know all this.
