Please do not misinterpret what I am about to say. I believe that the Confederate flag is disgraceful. It represents a corrupted heritage that is fundamentally rooted in chauvinism, bigotry, segregation, and militarism. Furthermore, I believe that it should be torn down from every monument, hallway, rooftop, and courthouse in our nation. . . . . . .
. . . . . . .Let me be clear. I am not calling for a universal human flag to replace the numerous flags in existence today. I do not want to see the United Nations emblem on every uniform and municipal building from Chicago to Cairo. What we need is a flagless world. No more oaths, and no more pledges of allegiance! To paraphrase Gandhi, “the only tyrant in this world that we should obey is the still small voice within.”
