Despite some things i do not understand or even dislike in the USA i am always impressed about your love to your country, your national anthem and your flag.

 

I really miss that spirit in germany.

 

So i wish all of you a great and peaceful independence day !

Brought a tear to my eye... and I'm an Englishman!

 

Like Carsten I miss that kind of spirit in England too.

 

Sadly I fear that being patriotic over here is now labelled as politically incorrect... :(

 

Happy Independence Day USA :cool:

Brought tears to my eyes. I heard that is one of the hardest songs to sing because of the range of notes. But this lady nail it.

Sadly I fear that sentiment is spreading. Love of one's country being frowned upon absolutely amazes me.

I try not to be political, but hopefully that'll be changing soon enough after Brexit and all.

It's one thing to be patriotic. It's another to be a nationalistic jerk. Nationalistic jerks are usually the ones who start world wars.

Right wing nationalism is but a response to left wing socialism in any country. You will not have one without the other. And the extremity of one is also related to the other. So if you think there is a problem with nationalism here, then it is only because there is a problem with socialism here.

Well, I wasn't being specific to this country but it appears that I struck a nerve.

Sure, infact it's a well known fact that nations weren't waging nationalistic wars against each other for millennia, before socialism was invented (for the record, I'm definitely anti-communist and definitely not leftist).

I appreciate your sarcasm, wars have been waged for myriad reasons over milennia, but which does essentially always boils down to nationalism in various forms. Right wing nationalism versus left wing socialism is just an architecture of many modern countries, particularly in europe. The US has been free of this construct until recently, when one of the parties transformed and pushed far to the left, causing recent rise of a right wing style opposition.

Thanks for posting this.  It's so refreshing, as an American, that there are still things we can all appreciate, enjoy and respect as a nation united.

 

As for our British brethren: hey you guys got your Last Night at the Proms!  Attending these festivities in Hyde Park is definitely on my bucket list: http://www.bbc.co.uk/events/ew48gw

James 4,verse1_4

"From where come wars and fighting among you? Come they not here even of your lusts that war in your members?

Ye lust and have not; ye kill and desire to have, and cannot obtain; ye fight and war, yet ye have not because you ask not. Ye ask and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lust."

To me that sums up the war question. All about self.
