     in the first place. Many very sick people are into pledging, saluting
     and, chanting (singing) to connect themselves to their cause. The
     rituals didn't cause them to be sick but it can keep them connected to
     the sickness. They are still sick with or without the rituals. Good,
     caring people are good and caring with and without the rituals.
    Absolutely agree. What is it that scoundrels do? Wrap themselves in the flag!
