Anybody who pays obeisance to any country, flag or government is a fool.

How should society be organised, if at all?

Used in the same way as paying respect.

If they conquer you with overwhelming force, and line you up against a wall to be shot unless you show respect for their flag and country, wouldn't you be a fool to reject it, saying heck no, I'm going my own way?

Many countries do this, like Iran.... if you don't stick to the Iranian ideals of behavior, you get shot. North Korea is worst, far worst.

I was talking about people in the so-called free world.

No, you were talking about anybody, by default anyone in either the free or unfree world.

The basis of your argument for this thread is now refuted, unless you heavily modify the OP.

Again, I meant people living in so-called free societies, not North Korea, China or Hell itself, so please don't have the testicular gall to tell me what I'm talking about, or ask me to change the title of this thread, you goofy son-of-a-bitch!

the idea of patriotism is having a soul, loyalty and a heart for ideas and people greater than oneself.

however most governments are corrupt and stupid and dont deserve our respect.

Listen, I can't help my testicular gall, it is massive and transparent for the world to see, and is something I've, and those around me, have had to struggle with my adult life. You wouldn't shout down someone with a stutter, now would you? Show people like me the same respect, don't call me out and shame me for this condition. I just want to be treated like anyone else. I put my panda on two legs at a time, sitting on the edge of the bed, like anyone else here.

Now that's something I'd like to see.

I have videos of it happening on a Brazilian site, beastality isn't legal to host in the US. $29.99 for a streaming pass to view it.

Not at all surprising.

Somehow such a thing as THAT doesn't bring tears to your eyes.

You have any idea how hard it is to find a panda?

They are a very expensive habit. Worse than opiates, Crack Cocaine or LSD, but not as bad for your health as smoking or drinking. And you can't catch AIDS or Hep by putting on a pair of pandas every morning.

In some countries the poorer people use a lesser substitute for it... pundas... pun, das ist ein pun. Pun for fun.

So why not pick up the habit of saying precisely what you mean?

Much less expensive than a panda habit.
