Petulant about Red Petals

Reading Robert Fisk's deep unhappiness about wearing poppies. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/poppycock--or-why-remembrance-rituals-make-me-see-red-8927751.html

Symbols are open scrapbook pages for meaning. They collect some tatty stuff, some things as black as the poppy heart. Also some noble, some transcendent. Is this a crazy idea, that we have wars to explore the heights and hideousness of ourselves simultaneously? And are there alternative methods?
