This is saying that the people that support the flag want the nation to break apart again. As Allen Guelzo states, “The flag of treason should be suppressed.” This is a good point, but it is not true. As chip Reid says. “The flag is an important part of an educational experience intended to inspire Americans to learn about their past.” This shows us that people are just bitter and not capable of handling the truth that the whole slavery idea was long ago and now that flag means nothing but something that you see on
When it comes to racial profiling people automatically believe that it is harsh and inhuman as well that the victim had nothing to do that caused racial profiling , when it comes to being frisked and detained.

Hence, some researchers argue that what happens during the stop is as important as the reason for it”. when it comes to law enforcement people always blame the police officer for taken a little more action on detaining someone.

Lucius Junius Brutus one of Brutus’ ancestor that turned Rome into a republic.
According to “Harrison Bergeron” George states that “ ‘If I tried to get away with it,’ said George, ‘then other people’d get away with it-and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn’t like that, would you?’ “ (Vonnegut 2). One can see that people in this collectivist society such as George know that breaking the law can do no good for oneself or others. In Anthem the text states that “International 4-8818 and we are friends. This is an evil to say, for it is a transgression, the great Transgression of Preference, to love any among men better than others, since we must must love all men and all men are our friends” (Rand 30).
Although Julius Caesar broke the law to start a war while Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi broke the law for peace, all these people broke the law for power.

The law states that is freedom of speech to burn our American Flag, but how is stomping and burning the symbol of this nation where our freedom of speech should be. Most do it out of anger toward our country, but why do they have to take such drastic measures to show their anger. Wattad stated” grant the flag special respect.” ( 1, 2008) It's not saying take away freedom of speech just grant something that represents what our soldiers are fighting for special respect. So if someone would burn the American flag than they would be punished not given a warning and let go. However, even though it might make a grown man cry to see this it doesn’t even come close to how a soldier who have fought for this symbol must
The exact opposite of what both Jefferson and Madison thought to be possible. In 2013 Americans learned the exact truth of the Patriot Act and the National Homeland Security Act.
