Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war
in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor,for patriotism is indeed a double edged sword.
It both emboldens the blood,just as it narrows the mind.
And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed,the leader will have no need in seizing
the rights of the citizenry.
Rather,the citizenry,infused with fear and blinded with patriotism,will offer up their rights unto the leader,and gladly so.
How do I know?.
For this is what I have done.
And I am Caesar.
