Bertrand Russell on The Flag

Bertrand Russell was a philosopher of anarchism, collectivism and mysticism. In 1963, this is what he said about the national flag:

"Every school, with hardly any exception, has as one of its objects the deception of children. They teach them patriotism, to salute the flag. But the flag is a murder symbol, and the state is a pirate ship, a gang of murderers who have come together. When they salute the flag, they salute the symbol of bloody murder."
