    My loyalty is to humanity - not any country.



    Have a nice day.
    yeah? let me know when "humanity" protects you from criminals and the chaos of war.

    It would have to be a pretty egregious, sudden abuse; with strong personalities leading the opposition. Frogs tend to stay 'till boiled.

    But a civil war within the military.... woof. That would get ugly.

    Your very much WRONG sir....FOOD...Necessary medicine many things you take for granted today "COULD" fall under his scenario...
    Trashing a specific medicine supply might kill a few people, but it wouldn't cause societal collapse either. Nobody actually has control over the global food supply, as theoretical ownership means squat.

    I pay taxes - so I certainly will take advantage of all the services that the country/region that I live in has to offer (including law enforcement) that I feel I require.

    As for the 'chaos of war'?

    If the war is just - I will fight in it if asked.

    If it is not - I will not.

    If I am imprisoned for not doing so - so be it.

    Or if failing to fight in the just cause gets me killed - so be it.

    I have no fear to die for what I feel is right - I can think of no better way to die, actually.

    I feel NO loyalty to a country - only to humanity and honor.


    All federal governments that I know of are corrupt, destructive and care not a lick about the masses that vote for them or the country they 'serve'.

    I will honor NO rule/law/decision they make unless it serves my purposes to do so.


    To blindly follow one's leaders in the name of patriotism is disgusting and is usually the origin of most major massacres and atrocities that have occurred over the term of human existence.

    'Patriotism' is usually just a word politicians use to get the masses to do some dirty work for them.

    Anyone that is more loyal to their 'country' then to honor and decency makes me sick.

    In other words - anyone that ignores their conscious to perform immoral deeds for the state and justifies it with the phrase 'I was just following orders' or 'I was just doing my job' make me sick.

    Yeah. Let me know when "humanity" will offer you those services.

    that's fantastic. really great. let me know how well you do against the Chinese.

    I feel NO loyalty to a country - only to humanity and honor.
    that's funny. I would rather suggest that your first statement negates the third.

    I will honor NO rule/law/decision they make unless it serves my purposes to do so.
    have a good time in prison!
