This chapter begins with a discussion of how the Sabra was socialized, covering stories and songs for children and adolescents, ideological education in the schools, ideologically directed textbooks, unconscious ideological instruction, school programs and memorial ceremonies, symbiosis between civilian and military structures, the Zionist myths, and ideological training. The discussion then turns to expressions of love for the homeland, covering patriotic rhetoric, the ideological chorus, Sabra writers as public clarions, the song of songs of Dani and Uri, striving to surpass the pioneers' expectations, the Sabra's sense of national responsibility, volunteerism and Sabra self-esteem, and the meaning of death for the Sabra soldier.
