In these times of rapid global change we tend to seek a sense of stability and security by holding a tight grip to old customs and tradition. The fact is that some of these traditions which most people rarely question because they are so embedded into the culture can actually be detrimental.
One prime example of such traditions is the American ritual of cooking and eating hot dogs and hamburgers. This custom has become probably a sacred tradition in American culture, the celebration of Independence Day on the 4th of July.
I have a message to those who still believe consuming burgers is a patriotic duty. If you are a proud American, you should have no problem demonstrating the values our culture so well advertises to the rest of the world. I am referring to the exercise of courage, truth and justice, and let’s not forget the crusade against all evil.
And to honor that courage, truth and justice we so highly regard in our beloved country may I ask that you watch this video?
