No, I agree. How you want to react to certain people/situations is often a very different thing from how you should react. I wouldn't even make an effective anti-patriot anyway, since I've never really felt like I understood what honor or patriotism 'means' beyond the literal definitions of those terms. It's just my 'gut' reaction to that kind of person (Jack Nicholson's Jessup being a example in my mind, since I think we get a much better picture of how he ticks). But you're also right in that he probably wouldn't give a damn.
May add in my thoughts on ST later if I have the time.
