It’s just a symbol.
What is it a symbol of? In the case of the American flag, everything good; everything great, everything exceptional about America. The American flag, our flag is important for the emotion it evokes.
Our flag is our belief that America is exceptional, a solid, well-considered nation above other nations because of our unique purpose and pride in each individual.
The pillars of the Western World are the pillars of Individual Liberty which in turn is based on the truths of science and the system of Capitalism. America is not great because we vote. Many nations and cultures vote. None vote as free people with a political system based on the individual.
An emotion is an automatic response triggered in your sub-conscious that summarizes all of your values and virtues. Emotions are not our enemies, they are our means of enjoying life. But they are not our guide; the guide is your mind. This relationship cannot be reversed,
If an individual is guided by his emotions. like the kneelers, who use their minds only to rationalize or justify their behaviors, them somehow—they he is acting immorally; condemning himself to misery, failure, defeat, and he will achieve nothing but destruction—his own and that of others.

Universities have a negative effect on the way things are going in the country according to Pew, and 58 percent of Republicans say that (36 percent said they have a positive effect), compared to 19 percent of Democrats with a negative view of colleges and universities. Gallup found that only 33 percent of Republicans and those leaning Republican have a great deal of faith in colleges and universities (67 percent had some or very little), compared to 56 percent of Democrats and those leaning that way (43 percent had some or very little).
But the facts are that a college education is not a sure-fire path to success and may be a detriment because in addition to an average cost in dollars of almost $300,00 the student loses four years of earnings which is another cost of about $80 to $100,000.
So at the end of four or five years in college you start in a huge financial hole of maybe $400,000 to a lot more than that if you attended an Ivy school and at $400 a week it will take $400,000 times the interest rate, use 3.7% per year, divided by about $400 a week for 40 years.
