Isn't that brainwashing?

I remember doing this in elementary school, that shit was fun. Getting to stand up and shout the pledge of allegiance. Then when the teacher yells at you for being loud you get to call them a commie bastard like the patriotic 10 year old you are.

I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America. And to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Thank you and have a nice day.

Every day for 12 fucking years.

Although I will report that we Canadians do stand for the national anthem in public schools.

You HAVE to put your right hand on your heart too.   
   
When I was in elementary school, I put my hand over my right pec, and the teacher told me it had to be exactly over my heart.   
   
When I asked why, she said "The heart is the most important part of your body. You have to hold what's most dear to you when you make a pledge."   
   
Every single boy in the class moved their hands onto their balls.

We're not forced
It's completely optional
We all just choose to participate because Freedom

It wasn't bad until I realized I was pledging my allegiance to a country before I understood what exactly that meant, and some people just decide not to say it, while others turn into a Captain America/Hulk fusion and insult those who don't say it.

I live overseas in Germany now, but thinking back on how I actually did that through elementary ... is so weird. I remember my teacher would yell at us if we weren't saying it out loud or something.   
It must seem like some Nazi shit to people who grew up elsewhere

This seriously isn't a thing in other countries? Damn, it's like we're being trained straight from the start to love and die for our country.

. . .Wait a minute. Are. . .are Americans the hive mind aliens from sci-fi movies? We have the best military, we're basically trained to love our country from a young age, so much so that we'd die to keep it safe and we have weaknesses to both guerrilla warfare and Will Smith.

My god we're the bad guys.

And this is how you brainwash people from a young age. Good job US and A.

Oh whatever, if you're dumb enough to be brainwashed by the Pledge of Allegiance, then you're better off being a loyal servant of the state than a bumbling idiot. The pledge was always a sort of pleasant formality for me, nothing more.

Fun facts:

The Pledge of Allegiance was originally written by a socialist in 1892 in order to sell some magazines better, which worked very well. Poor guy REALLY got ripped off by capitalism there (sarcasm).

It was not officially adopted until 1942. That's right. FOURTY TWO. Which means that for the majority of the most prideful, unified years of our nation, there was no official pledge. Kinda shows how unnecessary it is.

Furthermore, if you didn't think it was creepy enough before, it was originally done with a Hitler style salute. Officially called the Bellamy Salute (named after the guy who wrote the pledge), many places around the world adopted this, not just us. But it's still creepy as shit, and I personally don't find the hand-over-heart salute to be much less creepy since it's the same idea.

I mean, it's a fucking flag. We did just great without this cultish nonsense for almost 2 centuries. I think it's safe to say it's at a minimum completely pointless, and at worst enforcing collectivism.

the pledge of allegiance started after the civil war to "one nation indivisible" was the key phrase meant to discourage secessionist thinking, latter during the cold war the words "under god" were added between nation and indivisible as propaganda against the godless communists

Personally i liked saying the pledge of allegiance. I thought it was a nice way to start the day. Also i could have sworn other countries also did this.

If not oh well.
Merica.

For those who don't know the pledge it's rather short and quick and recited this way at the beginning of the school day:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America. To the republic; for which it stands. One nation; under god. Indivisible; with liberty, and justice for all."

It's basically 2 sentences that say "We are a nation that stands together for liberty and justice for all, and I am a part of that nation.". Furthermore I don't remember having to recite the pledge once I hit high school. At the beginning of the day we would look at the flag and hold our right hand over our heart while the principal recited the pledge over the intercom for everyone as they looked at the flag in silence.

This was all public school.

In China we gathered for morning exercise at the start of each day and stood at attention for the flag raising. On special occasions we also sang the national anthem.

I haven't lived in China for years and I still hum that tune in the shower.
