What If I Told You the Pledge of Allegiance You Learned in School Was a Complete Lie?

Time to admit that the Pledge of Allegiance is not about patriotism. It’s another way to maintain a very outdated tradition.

A lot of things we were taught in school aren’t relevant to everyday life anymore

The Pledge of Allegiance is more about peer pressure than anything else

The lie no one wants to admit about the pledge
