Patriotic speeches to make war

In the land of the free on the western hemisphere, where once stood two tall structures made of steel and glass ,built by ingenious ones with hearts of creativity and innocence, soaring to the sky, lie many a speaker who touch words of patriotism to flare up passions of war.

It is such words that build up things with the help of flags and whose operations which are false, later leading to destructions.

One such act which happened in the month of a minus preceding a ray to confirm a broken bone, when the calendar showed it was double one , when the year ended in one and started with two, with nothings in between.

May we not fall a prey to such speeches and lose our good hearts for their benefit of war and crime.

This is nothing new as we read the words of Julius Caesar and how he had been a part of it too.

"Beware the leader who beats 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 and 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 by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar." - Julius Caesar
