The Fourth has just been experienced and all the flags, speeches and patriotism was as usual…..a bit telling…..
For one, most displays of the flag is done wrong.
I have written about patriotism on several occasions and this post has some of my thoughts within it…..https://lobotero.com/2019/10/10/what-is-patriotism-2/
It appears that patriotism has fallen to its lowest level in a couple of decades…..
American patriotism is at its lowest ebb for almost two decades, a new poll has found.
A survey by Gallup found that while 70 per cent of US adults said they are “proud” to be American, less than half said that they are “extremely proud”.
The findings were released ahead of the Fourth of July national holiday amid the country’s struggle to rein in the coronavirus pandemic, and calls for racial justice and an end to policy brutality in Black Lives Matter protests in every state.
Gallup said that US pride is at its lowest point since the company began taking polls on it in 2001. It is the second year that the number of “extremely proud” people dropped below the majority (45 per cent).
