The point I want to make here is that being overly nice or even patriotic - about a symbol over the human beings the Constitution/laws are designed to protect - is a weakness where a despotism/tyranny/dictatorship take take root (as making objects more important than people is a slippery path that religion is often/commonly susceptible to and what the Constitution protects us from with it's first amendment).
