This Video library begins with a version of the Pledge of Allegiance presented first by a famous American celebrity – Red Skelton. It is posted here as a means of reinforcing how important patriotism is, as a primary value commitment, to America today. The lesson, for those viewing these pages from other countries, is that they should be equally proud of their national heritage. This approach has utility both for purposes of national cohesion and cooperation but also as a strategy that recommends itself for the promotion of peace in an anarchic world.
