From “The Scourge of Nationalism” by Howard Zinn in “The Progressive” magazine, June 2005:

“What makes our nation immune from the normal standards of human decency?

Surely, we must renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.

We need to assert our allegiance to the human race, and not to any one nation. We need to refute the idea that our nation is different from, morally superior to, the other imperial powers of world history.”

Google to find the whole essay online, well worth reading in these fun, fun, times.
