Comment: It is important

(See in situ)


It is important

NOT to get carried away glorifying our suffering. Religious like to glorify martyrs, socialists - their own revolutionaries who withstood prison and torture. All for an abstract goal - faith, allegiance, fraternity, community, country, society, humanity.

There was no self-sacrifice here. Each of us did what they did for our personal selfish desire - to live in a free society where (we assume) our personal life (and that of our relatives and love ones) will be better. It is a rational self-interest.

Ron Paul even reminded, that if there is no fun in the mix, we do not do it right.
