National Anthem Or Old British Drinking Tune?

Kneel before me. I said… KNEEL! Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It’s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life’s joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.

Not to men like you

There are no men like me

There are always men like you.

 Well shit .... you got me there. 

The them and us attitude is not a morally just place to come from. Doing it because everyone else is or to show respect ..... well not everyone are mindless sheep or think the same as you.

Sneaking in 'under God' into the pledge of allegiance or standing up when a tune is played does not make you a better person. Most US wars are for other reasons but history has them down as for freedom. I know this is bullshit cos I come from the place that had the great British Empire for fucks sake. Well ruled not out of a need for freedom but for money and the fact we (the English really) believe themselves to be superior to everyone else.

The Americans now think they are the superior ones. 

The first civil war was about taxes and wanting to make the money for themselves, the second civil war was about keeping the Union together, then you've got WWI which was those nasty Germans and their U-Boats and a possible alliance with Mexico.
WWII was because of Pearl Harbor. The US wasn't big into freedom, it sat on the side lines saying 'this isn't my war' until it could not ignore it and public opinion for going to war was more positive.

Then you have the various little wars to stop the spread of Communism. The wars for oil which go on today. Call them Operation Enduring Freedom all you like but who is it that is really free?

The average grunt fights because they are told to. If they can fool themselves that they are fighting for their country or for freedom then they'll be more receptive. The enemy has to be made evil so what is more evil than people that want to enslave you and take your freedoms? It really works out well that ISIS want some crazy ass Sharia law as that makes the typical American just down right angry.

Should you spring to your feet every time you hear an old British drinking tune? Should you put yer hand on yer heart and gaze wistfully into the distance?

Do you remember those that fought and died ever telling you to do any of this? They fought because they had to. They fought because it was their job or they were drafted and didn't have a choice. If you invoke their memory as a reason for doing something you've missed the point and probably suffer from civvie guilt.

You want to make your cuntry Nazi again? The Nazis didn't give people a choice or freedoms. You had to join the Hitler Youth and salute, you had to wear a yellow star.

Old Glory is just a bit of cloth, it won't protect you from bullets or feed you when yer hungry. It's like religion, you can make it something magical and full of these ideals and beliefs etc but when you get down to it there is only what you bring to it and how you think of it.

Like religion or Nazis you don't need to be going around telling other people what they should be doing, especially if you live in a so-called free cuntry.

Respect has to be earned, as does freedom. Donald Trump has been going around saying that America isn't great and no one pulled a dead soldier on him.

Standing or not standing you can do whatever you want because A) it isn't harming anyone and B) freedom means you have the right to do it just as much as you have the right to own guns and pursue happiness.

Get with the program and appreciate yer freedom instead of demanding that everyone blindly obeys.

Bravo, Soren! Now, If you'd only learn the proper spelling of 'country', this column would be perfect. ;)

What else would you call a place full of cunts but cuntry? I spell it correctly it's everyone else that has the problem.
