NEW PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
I have genuinely never ever understood patriotism. I have never understood why anybody would assume (or want to assume) that the country they were born in (or that they live in) is superior to any other country. Equally I have never understood why anybody would automatically support a team from the country they were born in or live in.
If I were ever asked to commit to any kind of pledge of allegiance, I could only ever make a sincere pledge to the planet as a whole.....
"I pledge allegiance to the earth and to the flora, fauna, human and posthuman life that it supports. One planet, indivisible, with safe air, water & soil, economic justice, equal rights and peace for all." etc
