Quote of the Day: National Flags

In people's heads, a national flag usually represents some vague, undefinable, yet inexplicably positive thing worth loving--a la Stockholm Syndrome. In reality, it represents a political jurisdiction: the turf over which a particular gang of thugs and parasites claims the right to rule. Accepting that reality is a rather drastic spoiler when it comes to patriotic and nationalistic emotionalism. Sorry, but there ain't no sane reason to love a symbol of authoritarian domination, or the slave plantation for which it stands.-Larken Rose
