When people follow blind patriotism the worst deeds and ills of mankind become common place. There is an old saying, “patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” made famous by Samuel Johnson and today such patriotism is rampant.
War, poverty, fascism and more are all fine if you wrap it in the American flag. So please don’t expect such flag waving drum beating in today’s show. I don’t want to tell you what America is or even was but what it was promised to be. I won’t lie to you and say that America will last forever, likely it won’t at least in its current form.
Yet there is an America that has tried to exist since she was founded, an America that lives up to the promises our founders made, and even they didn’t keep. An America we can create if we choose to. It is also possibly an America we might have to keep alive some day under another name. We don’t know the future but we know that we alone are responsible to fulfill the promises of the past.
