hide out in excess of 60 years waiteing to go back into action for the emporor. frankly that shows one hell of a commitment for the cause. can you
imagine yourself willing to go through the same thing? i can't.
It is very hard for anyone in this country to understand that much passion and commitment for their country. Very few people in America show that
kind of passion and commitment for anything, except maybe sports. Yet we see this in other countries. Why?
I think that it is emotion based. When I was a recruiter for the US Navy, we were taught to "sell the Navy". If you were a good recruiter, you
were likened to a successful used car salesman. ALL of our sales scripts were based on emotion. We seldom used logic, but stressed emotion. We
would spin a scenario of the young fella coming home from bootcamp in his crackerjacks (uniform) and how the girls would swarm around him encouraging
the person to imagine how "that" would feel.
Emotions can be strong things, using them to sell a product is not something new. Whether that product is a bowl of cereal, a religion, an idea, or a
country, nothing sells better than emotion.
