Nothing to Die For? Nothing to Live For?

When I was younger John Lennon's Imagine was one of my favorite songs. In recent years though whenever I hear this verse:

"Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too..."
I hear this answer in the back of my head:
"If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live."
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
