I doubt that there is any anthem out there that "represents the people and country".

The British anthem is just one big pompus tune worshiping the monarch. The German athnem asks for luck and peace for the nation and the French anthem is a marching song from the revolutionary wars.

Although I like the Idea.





I doubt it too. I like the idea, too. Shy

The Yanks were in Toronto today and I have to say that during the 7th inning stretch at least they don't play that awful, syrupy, shitty, 'god bless america' crapfest that they do in Yankee Stadium.

Otherwise....go Yanks.

Which is bullshit.

In all honesty why do countries have to have bullshit things like national anthems, flags, religions, flowers and birds?

I fucking hate all that bollocks. Just get on with your bloody job, and stop dicking about.

Do we really need a national anthem? The most dreary, depressing, up your own arse lyrics.

The whole idea of patriotism and nationalism is stupid. IMO.
You don't choose where you're born. I didn't choose to be born in New Zealand so why do I have to cross my heart and swear loyalty to it?
It's not till recently I've started thinking more about it and how they made us, like literally made us, sing the national anthem at school.
This is our national anthem:


God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free land.
Guard Pacific's triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand.

If, God forbid, I had children I wouldn't want them singing that crap.
And I no longer sing it for sporting events.

I don't ow this country shit. "Oh but Muffs, what about social security and all that the state does for you". Taxes. I pay for that shit. If you buy something from someone, such as a clerk at a gas station, you don't feel compelled to swear some sort of blood pact to that person...
Why should a country be any different?

Don't get me wrong though, I think for example working in the armed forces is a viable thing to do. I think you can believe that spreading democracy or whatever is a good cause and so you want to help. But joining the military because you feel like you ow your country something is stupid.

Nationalism is gonna be the next big thing to go, after religion. People are going to see it for the poison it often is (it divides people and causes pointless hatred towards others. ie: I hate all french.) just as they're slowly seeing religion for the poison it is.

edit: actually you know what, come to think of it, nationalism is a bigger killer than religion.

I might be inclined to skip the 8th and 9th innings for her.
