"In short the Declaration of Independence and the Pledge of Allegiance represent two distinct philosophical concepts which are diametrically opposed. The Declaration of Independence presents a rationale for individual political liberty as against an established authority. The Pledge of Allegiance satisfies a collective political (and presently overtly religious) demand for obligatory individual loyalty and conformance to an established authority, i.e. god and country."
