Frequently Asked Questions

Won't there be more flag burnings if you get this law?

That argument doesn't stand up under scrutiny. If flag burning is prohibited, the argument goes, there will be more of it. Therefore, we should make it legal to prevent it. This argument fails in the light of real experience. The fact is, the more society tolerates, the worse behavior becomes. Permissiveness has the opposite effect. Part and parcel to this argument is that we should allow flag burning to show how much the flag means. In other words, in order to preserve, protect and promote the flag, we should condone destroying it.
