My biggest observation is that there is no confidence among the people anymore. There is no pride.. People have become indifferent about almost anything, generally speaking. even as bad as the US is getting, it's miles above most Eurpoean nations in terms of these two powerful nationalistic abservations.,


    Tim-
    That observation of Europeans would seem to contradict a comparison to the Hitler Youth. I don't think a lack of pride or indifference was a problem with the Nazi's.

    The absurd part of the comparison, in my view, is that the camp was for 15 to 25 year olds. Bit late for indoctrination.

    The major reason parents send their kids to these camps is to try and christianize them.

    I don't think there's any hypocrisy. Except your own, because you seem to have a bigger problem with religious camps than political ones. Religiophobia, perhaps? Bigotry towards pious persons?

    But it isn't political so it is okay even though a lot of topics at the camp are political topics.
