Got a jump on the Fourth of July last Sunday with this performance of my anthem to curbing one’s nationalism.
Four years ago I wrote a song encapsulating my feelings regarding blind nationalism called Old Glory. The lyrics will speak for themselves. All I can add is that the Independence we celebrate on this Day ought to include the ability to be independent in thought without fear.
A lofty goal that the Founding aimed at, but often failed to live up to. As has the republic that followed in the ensuing two centuries plus.
Having said that, there’s still no place that’s come closer to it on the planet. And I’ll do my part to keep it that way.
Home studio version at my Bandcamp.
