"I feel that pressuring students, starting as young as four or five, to promise unwavering loyalty and support for a country and government is dangerous. I believe the only way we will move forward as a nation is if citizens question authority, question what is being done, and make their own opinions and values known. Blind indoctrination discourages free thought and change and paves the way for power-hungry officials to do whatever they please and throw “anti-american” and “unpatriotic” accusations if anyone disagrees" 

- This was always my objection. I am pleased to see I'm not alone in that outlook. The "exceptionalism" of the US has always had more to do with an idealized standard of the world that doesn't resemble the actual politics and policies of the country in many cases, and any attempt to have people pledging and fostering loyalty to those actual leaders and politics is foolish and potentially dangerous.

Focus points for secularists?
In the wake of some of the "anti-theist" business and any sniff of this being tied to violence, I thought it useful to outline some social focus points of atheists and secularists as they might apply to the lived experiences. That is: does this form of demo...

Well. You could improve your odds by finding a stranger to do it for you, but her point was pretty strong. It's an incredibly rare and almost impossible fear to be worrying about.

"Quick" hits
1) There was an atheist who killed some Muslims in North Carolina, for what appears to have been a parking dispute. For some reason this became a widely circulated presentation that atheists a) want to kill people or b) want to kill Muslims in particular. I...

Why is Golden St not the favorite?
A team with a high point differential, a good coach, a good defense, should be regarded as a heavy favorite to win a title. Add to this having an MVP candidate, Curry, to the "best player on the court usually wins" theory. As a comparison. Currently GS's SR...

Revisiting the story of a man arrested at his job for "trespassing"—and the cops who paid no price for wrongly detaining him dozens of times.

What if we had a war and nobody came
Significant aspects of this piece I tend to agree with . A draft is a terrible idea. Such a program has little or no predictive value for whether the public will oppose foolish misadventures abroad or not on top of the ethical problems of compelling militar...

A new report finds that locking up more offenders isn't making people any safer—and may even be counterproductive.
