What we say and do have a greater weight that what we wear. Just wearing the same thing does not create camaraderie.

Only if you post memes on the Internet.

I think it is a quote. A quote unworthy of being quoted by anyone. It is too long and I didn't really care about the subject matter.

Yes, but It doesnt mean I am a slave. Just like I carry around with me my Saber Fate zero command seal wallet, I live by that command seal, who owned that command seal, I live by their life that was created.

It doesn't mean I am being used in order to give away my money and well being, being used.

Just like many people who get tattoos to permanently stay with them as a reminder, as I plan on getting that command seal tattoo'd onto my body it will be a part of me.

To want to live by a symbol, a logo, a piece of clothing, it doesnt give us the illusion of identity, it defines our identity through connecting with another's point of view.

This is how we create a following of dedication. This is how armies were formed, this is how strength is built , to show people what true power really is.

It is not ownership, it is what we call respect, to show that dedication, to keep that symbol alive through our constant praise and defense.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but sounds to me like it is railing against ideologies and not against...wearing clothes with logos on them.

Yet another emo kid who thinks it's a bad thing to identify with a group of people whose own ideals align with one's own as well. Yes we all must be edgy loners if we wish not to be slaves.

This is generally correct, as it's how ideologies function, though I'd say (1) we don't really choose our ideologies freely, they kinda force themselves upon us, and (2) serfdom is a little too specific. Perhaps more nitpicky is that people can signal acceptance of an ideology without actually adopting it fully - or at all - or even understanding it. It's easy to be hypocritical.

Though it is likely potentsativa agrees with the sentiment of the quote, he did ask us what we thought of it and whether it applied to us, indicating he was at least willing to discuss it. I don't always have the best intentions when I say things, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

It's an example of extremely inefficient writing.

Receives rock. Note says I want you to have this.

Takes rock and make into ceremonial stone.

Has a moment of silence.
