RE; “Is Our Patriotism Moral?” (TIMES, 7/4/12)


Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.

Does Gary Gutting love the rapacious capitalism that is so deeply ingrained in the U.S. business elite and its lackies in government?

Does he believe that God blessed America, as patriots are smugly claiming when they sing that hymn?

Doesn’t it border on sacrilege to believe that God favors the people of the United States over all others?  (How do patriots know what God thinks?)

So, on Independence Day I say: Long live the American Revolution that promised freedom and equality and down with the patriotic creed which is the handmaiden of the monopoly capitalists who have such a rigid hold on this country!
