Having patriotic citizens (not to be confused with pro-government) is critical to having a strong country and playing the national anthem promotes that. Have enough pride in your country to want to hear it's national anthem and to stop what you're doing for a few minutes to respect what it represents.
Hahahaha - true "patriots" don't need to have a song played to them every day to remind them to be proud of their country.
Playing the anthem before every single sports event, spelling bee and mall opening is just jingoistic third-world garbage.
