    We currently have two country leaders flexing their muscles and tongues. Both countries peoples are being fed misinformation (admittedly one more than the other).
    99.9% of each countries populace would happily sit down and have a meal together. A little uneasy at first but gradually realise that all they want to do is live peacefully with each other and even help each other in different ways.

      The problem is the same as it has always been, 20ish odd people want something, or don’t like a few people from somewhere else. So they send thousands of people, who would much rather have stayed at home with their loved ones, to die.

      At this point, I fear it is human nature. As advanced as we are, there are still enough around who think that their way of life, or their religion or their government is the only way that should exist. Everyone else is either evil or deluded and needs to be exterminated or converted.

    Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel…

      It’s actually ‘false patriotism’…an edit of a Samuel Johnson quote.

        I didn’t cite the quote because I assumed that it was well known enough that no one would think I was claiming it to be my own lol. I’ve only ever seen the quote as I have it, the falseness of the patriotism being implied. Have you seen it the other way? Tone can be hard to read, so I just want to clarify that I’m being sincere and not an asshole.

          Crows are my favorite bird. Respect to you. Cheers!

    He’s not talking about now. He’s talking about 9/11. Remember all the flags on the cars?

      “Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg trials 1946” – so clearly, no, he isn’t. It can be applied to any time, though.

        Woodrow Wilson pulled the same shit to get America into WWI.

  • Jesus Vasquez

  • Shai Hulud

    this literally applies equally to both political spectrums.
