Yeah Raam the super patriotism is a very dangerous and common thing. I was born legally blind so that growing up and living in an area that prides itself on militarism and how wonderful it is to to serve your country by going off and killing other people on the other side of the planet Just doesn’t make sense. I am very glad you mention that it is all the little things we stand up for that count as service to one’s community.

Like you I am having trouble with the question of what I would be willing to die for. It is a truly great question.
