image for William Shakespeare questions patriotism
"Those in power want patriotism without paying compensation," says Shakespeare.

William Shakespeare famed writer and former father of poor Yorick said in an interview with Sally Piggs that his dismissal from his former life has put into question the true definition of patriotism.

Alas, poor Shakespeare! We knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: Now a ghost whose haunting words have he left behind.

"It has to do with destroying voices that political slave masters and monarchs do not like," he added in his defense.

"Patriotism is a general term of broad associations that leads to confusion," Shakespeare said.

The quality of being patriotic is traditionally defined as vigorous support for one's country.

Shakespeare feels that a system based on fear and totalitarian authority is what gives rise to the false definition of patriotism.

He believes in a clear and detailed definition of loyalty to one's country, like that used for corporate employees. Corporate employees are loyal when paid and they look for a new sense of loyalty when applying for a new job.

He defines patriotism in detail, like the details seen in the legal presentation of a court case, that avoids misinterpretations.

Shakespeare's definition of patriotism goes as follows:

Military Patriotism- the duty and loyalty of a military employee based on pay.

National Patriotism - the moral support shown through flag waving and cheers at political campaigns when individuals are given a yearly $5,000.00 stimulus bonus by the I.R.S. for such support.

Penetionary Patriotism - the moral support for the nation shown by prison inmates who are allowed to live with women in cells.

Defensive Patriotism - the duty offered by citizens in the defense of their country only when their country is invaded by enemy forces and only when citizens are able to attain food, clothing, and medical attention in the social system they live in.

Patriotism - the various methods of pay given to citizens in exchange for loyalty to their country.

Supporters of Shakespeare identify his views as "Humanity's Subjugation."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
