Flag Burning.
O, American flag debate! I'm interested in what causticveracity has to say on the subject. Making flag burning illegal really means making representation a legal matter, literally inscribing a multifaceted symbol into law. Which in turn makes breaking that law really f'ing cool and subversive. Who wouldn't want to get arrested for breaking a law that would obviously go against the First Amendment?

Isn't this essentially what the Mohammed cartoon debate was about? The sacred? The history of Western culture tells us that it's better to support the rational side of the argument. I think one major reason the West has risen in the last few centuries is its new tradition of atheism, which helps allow a critical thinking discourse that results, eventually, in economic clout.

Inscribing what is sacred and what is not is just a bad idea. Nothing is sacred, and everything is. Christian paradox.
