Ep 40: Why the Pledge of Allegiance is Un-American with Tom Mullen

Summary – Why the Pledge of Allegiance is Un-American with Tom Mullen

On this episode, I sit down with Tom Mullen, and author and host of the Tom Mullen Talks Freedom podcast, to discuss an article he wrote a few years back for the Foundation of Economic Education entitled ‘Why the Pledge of Allegiance is Un-American. We discuss the problem of pledge-making to the state, why phrases like ‘one nation’, ‘under God’, and ‘indivisible’ are at odds with historic American values, and how decentralization can solve many of our complicated political problems. We also explain why pledging allegiance to a state is incompatible with the values of all religious people. This is a fascinating conversation about American history, politics, and libertarian philosophy. Enjoy!
