Okay so many of you feel that it is essential that American kids make a pledge of allegiance on a regular basis. Does that mean Australian kids should swear fealty the Queen of England? Should the kids of all nations be brainwashed into the notion that their country is superior?
Or are we past all that bullshit? Are we all citizens of the world, in this day and age, showing respect and courtesy to people of all nations?

I don't think there is anything wrong with having pride in your country. Just because you don't have pride in your nationality does not mean that others should not. And, no, we are not citizens of the world as long as there are countries who are going to war and inequality abounds. I am proud to be an American, but there are many countries out there that I would not be proud to be from.
