Morale boosting has been in vogue from pre historic days. People used to blow pipes, beat drums and sing song etc. for the purpose. Such activities have been going on to boost up morale of armies, civilizations and other groups based on races, religions etc. Almost all groups arrange yearly or occasional ceremonies to exhibit their pomp and show.

Rhetoric is an art and ability which had/has been used by concerned group leaders and contributes a lot in successful grouping.
