reply #31 usanurse's post

I believe that quote was said by former President John Kennedy of the US during his speech telling Americans  "not to ask what their country could do for them but to ask what they could do for their country."


scene #1, battle field of Viet Nam War
speaker: statesman
listener: Forest Gump, another soldiers
"not to ask what our country could do for us but to ask what we could do for our country. march on! march on!"
result: numberless soldier died, Forest Gump successfully escaped by fastest running.

scene #2, battle field of Iraq War
speaker: the same
listener: soldiers
"not to ask what our country could do for us but to ask what we could do for our country. march on! march on! for the freedom of Iraq!"
result:numberless soldiers died, mournings of their parents.

scene #3, a factory
speaker: the boss
listener: the workers
"not to ask what your corporation could do for you but to ask what you could do for your corporation. work on! work on! you must know, no work, no money, no life! the firm is your home, the workplace is your family, you can do anything you like, such as drinking, eating, sleeping, having sex, watching tv, breeding your offspring, but not arguing! your workplace was your cradles, and will be your tombs. thanks Our God, for he give us so much to enjoy. amen."
result:numberless workers died, without a bit of knowledge of  their death.

neither i will ask the country to do something for me, nor will i force myself do something for the country, i just want do what i really want do, freely, and no command compelled upon me.

if the country having no love towards us, why we need to love it, it's just a phantom, a false concept.
if the countrism is to find some cause to fight against another nation for some unspeakable purpose, it'd be just a wolf clothed with the coat of a sheep.

how can you sleep at night, when other parents' sons are bleeding at fight.

"Ev'rybody's talking about
Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
This-ism, that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m.

All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

C'mon
Ev'rybody's talking about Ministers,
Sinisters, Banisters and canisters
Bishops and Fishops and Rabbis and Pop eyes,
And bye bye, bye byes.

All we are saying is give peace a chance"
