Patriotism

Posted to Poetry and Politics





Celebrities are no different than anyone else: As long as it's clear they're speaking for themselves, rather than some entity they might be hired to represent, then they should be free to express whatever opinions they might have. In fact, I would argue that it's our duty as patriotic Americans to speak up, especially with dissenting perspectives. If we are truly loyal to our country, then the last thing we should do is offer blind support to its institutions.
