Obedience Training: The Truth about the Pledge of Allegiance

| |

The Bellamy Salute

A look into the origins of the pledge of allegiance – mandatory regurgitation for school children – reveals that it was actually created by a magazine in 1892 in order to sell flags to schools, and the pledge was created by Francis Bellamy to create a reason for schools to buy the flags.

In turn, this social ritual creates cohesion and unity in the mind of the public with the federal government.

Until it was changed in the 1940s, the salute was actually a military salute wherein children then “hailed” the flag in a fashion very similar to what was done in Nazi Germany. American children were instead trained to put their hand over their hearts… and the phrase “under God” wasn’t added until 1954 in the Eisenhower Administration – controlled from the shadows by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and his brother Allen.

The 20th Century was the era of collectivism. During the same general time period that communism, fascism and national socialism swept over the land, America quietly transformed into a nation dominated by central government, and swarmed with agencies under the executive branch.

In the midst of cities and technology, traditions of independence and self-reliance were replaced by collectivism – where the greater good took precedence over the needs and rights of the individual. Social Security and other programs put everyone on the State farm.

    The pledge should have been to the constitutuon!
    Imagine if instead of flag makers it had been Bill of Rights pamphlet printers trying to get every student to know the constitution. Then, the flag would actually have meaning.

    • You must be completely ignorant of the political philosophies of the men who wrote the Constitution.

      • Another Thought Criminal

        Must I?

        • Helluva3ngineer

          Yeah, plus they was white!

        • Your post reflected ignorance of the Declaration of Independence.

          • Another Thought Criminal

            Weird, since I never even mentioned the Declaration of Independence.

          • Even weirder, neither the Constitution nor the Declaration mentioned a pledge of allegiance.

          • Another Thought Criminal

            No they didn’t. Maybe it should have though. Maybe it should have made education with an education on liberty a requirement.
            The govt. schools now indoctrinate to statism; maybe it’d have been better if that’d have been unconstitutional.

          • The schools are unconstitutional.

          • varlog

            I think that was what the very first post was about if you bothered to read it.

          • Which “that” are you talking about?

          • varlog

            Very first line from the very first post, typos included:
            The pledge should have been to the constitutuon!

            Your statement:
            Even weirder, neither the Constitution nor the Declaration mentioned a pledge of allegiance.

          • All I’d need, if I wanted it, would be to know your point in the fact that I don’t get your point.

          • varlog

            I couldn’t make it any simpler. Sorry.
            Get you mommy to explain it to you.

          • She was probably dead before you were born, but she went way out of her way to make sure I wasn’t going to turn into the drone that you have.

  • I don’t pledge allegiance to the flag because it doesn’t stand for what it used to. If I am present during such, I will stand quietly aside from shouting “republic” at the appropriate time.

  • EnemyOfTheState

    I remember as a kid we had to pledge allegiance every morning. Now, I pledge allegiance to no flag, no nation and no man. This article is correct, it’s an indoctrination into statism. .

    “Social Security and other programs put everyone on the State farm”

    I speak for many seniors on SS when I say we are sick and tired of having SS and Medicare lumped into the WELFARE-Entitlement category by this author and many many more republicans on a daily basis. We all worked and paid our own money and that of our employers into this fund all by private workers and private sector employers. This money is ours not the republicans who throw money away on NEO CON WARS and the MIC and MEDICAL MAFIA.

    You scumbags owe us this money and if you wish to stop this program go right ahead just give every worker who contributed their money back plus the employer contributions with the same accrued interest that the IRS would charge us for any balance due. Pay each of us in full non taxable and you have the end of the only safety net that has actually worked out for the American worker

    Republicans in particular want every worker back in Company housing and charging goods in the company store for slave wages.

    Democrats just want all your money to be mandatory spent on Medical insurance and lawyers and raise real tax rates to also put you in the poor house.

    Both of these criminal elements are ready for removal from the public as choices to represent them. We don’t need no stinking parties to rip us off

      “The Urban Institute, a non-partisan research institute in Washington, produces statistics on this topic annually. Institute researchers figured out what people turning 65 in various years have already “paid in” to the system and what can expect to “take out” after they reach age 65. (See our charts below)

      Because marital status and family income can significantly affect both the amount paid in and the amount paid out, the institute offers its calculation for various types of family units. To make the final amounts comparable to what might have been done with the tax money had it been invested privately, the institute adjusted all dollar figures at 2 percentage points above the rate of inflation. (The authors note that different assumptions for long-term returns on investment would change the results.)

      According to the institute’s data, a two-earner couple receiving an average wage — $44,600 per spouse in 2012 dollars — and turning 65 in 2010 would have paid $722,000 into Social Security and Medicare and can be expected to take out $966,000 in benefits. So, this couple will be paid about one-third more in benefits than they paid in taxes.

      If a similar couple had retired in 1980, they would have gotten back almost three times what they put in. And if they had retired in 1960, they would have gotten back more than eight times what they paid in.” – Politifact

      From the following link: http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/is-there-right-social-security

      “You worked hard your whole life and paid thousands of dollars in Social Security taxes. Now it’s time to retire. You’re legally entitled to Social Security benefits, right? Wrong. There is no legal right to Social Security, and that is one of the considerations that may decide the coming debate over Social Security reform.

      Many people believe that Social Security is an “earned right.” That is, they think that because they have paid Social Security taxes, they are entitled to receive Social Security benefits. The government encourages that belief by referring to Social Security taxes as “contributions,” as in the Federal Insurance Contribution Act. However, in the 1960 case of Fleming v. Nestor, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that workers have no legally binding contractual rights to their Social Security benefits, and that those benefits can be cut or even eliminated at any time.”
