There is nothing wrong with patriotism provided you keep in mind your enemy too has been brainwashed to believe there is nothing wrong in killing you in the name of God and Country.

There was a World War II because the combatants
had their own versions of World War I.

Nature seems to be partial to the number two: we
have two eyes, two ears, two arms, two legs, and
a forked tongue.

In Aaron Sorkin’s NEWSROOM,

after making a long list of facts that prove

 “America is not the greatest country on earth,”

McAvoy (the central character) adds:

“But we used to be.”

No mention of slavery, racism, McCarthyism,

Watergate. Nixon, Scalia, Archie Bunker, Madoff…

and I could go on!

Yes, you could go on, but before you do, you might read the Code of Conduct first. Just to keep you out of trouble. :)
"Arguing with someone who hates you or your ideas, is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what move you make, your opponent will walk all over the board and scramble the pieces".

Of the 1% we can truly say:

The higher they rise,

the lower they sink.

If you speak the truth

liars will conspire against you

and you will be outnumbered a thousand to one.

Real patriotism and propaganda
are mutually exclusive concepts.

ON LEADERSHIP
*********************************
Leadership plays a key role
in the life and death of nations.
Compare the fate of Jews in Germany
with that of Jews in Egypt
under the charismatic political leadership
of Moses. And now consider our own fate
at the turn of the last century
in the Ottoman Empire.
*
Homo sapiens may also be defined
as a being incapable of learning from history.
*
If we reject history as a useful tool of survival,
we condemn ourselves to systematic extermination
or the death of a thousand self-inflicted cuts.
*
Our historians have betrayed us
by reducing the study of history
to perpetual lamentation.

Survival comes with a price. The body may survive, but the spirit, that’s different.

Those who declare wars have a better chance to survive them than those who do the actual fighting.

SPENGLER AND TOYNBEE

************************************

What I find fascinating in Spengler and Toynbee are not the grand theories about the cyclical (Spengler) or non-cyclical (Toynbee) nature of history, but the gems of penetrating observations that are scattered throughout their works.
