That right there is the 100% proof that they lied to us somewhere along the lines about a few critical issues.
I know every one of you were taught as children that flag represented freedom, and dictating how and when to use a flag is not freedom, it is a
dictation. An authoritative command.
They are exact opposites - telling me what to do with the flag and restricting my activity versus leaving me be and respecting my discretion.
Come on folks we aren't children, we are suppose to be adults who can think for ourselves and make our own choices.
They told me that flag represents freedom, but here the exact same government is presenting legislation in hopes of directing the course of my
personal action. It is incredibly ironic in fact. Over a piece of cloth no less. All this controversy over a piece of cloth.
And if you think we modern folk are totally absurd and nuts, think of how horrifyingly insane people must have been throughout history.
In many ways the 'cult' explanation fits extremely well. Essentially there are many different cults, and they will adopt various symbols or icons
through heraldry in order to not only represent their faction, but also on the battlefield where the cults fought it out, they needed various methods
of identifying friend from foe, and so things like uniforms developed.
All this killing and fighting through history. For the home team? Sports are designed like war as well, gotta practice.
Similar to war and politics in human history is hunting game. But there is a critical difference, we don't actually have a practice of presenting our
colors/icons to the animal before we kill it.
All of these questions reveal something. They reveal that we are told two different stories. Two opposite conflicting interests.
Either I am free or I am not.
Right now it appears I am free, but the "US Code" claims I am not.
Perhaps the US Code is a legal fiction and applies only to legal fictions?
