Preachin' to the choir, my beloved friend! 8-) Yes, you can see elements of pantheism and relativism in this year's show. Great conclusion!
Couldn't agree more. If it would be that easy to be happy, there would be a lot more happy people in the world.

I get the idea the Cadets seem to be expressing, that happiness doesn't come from pursuing the things of this world. But there's a reason why the poet said, "Tis a GIFT to be simple." If the Cadets had 30-60 seconds of performance time available to them, I'd love it if they could work that tune into their show.

You and me both, and it would work perfectly.
Just because your hate is masked by "free thinking" or being "open-minded" does not make it right.
