How long will people continue to believe when someone opposes a specific government policy that person is un-patriotic?

“One to whom the interests of a part seem superior to those of the whole. The dupe of statesmen and the tool of conquerors.”
‘Patriot’ from “The Devil’s Dictionary” by Ambrose Bierce

“One of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence.”
Charles A. Beard (1874-1949), American historian

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
