A symbol is only as worthy of respect as that to which it refers. If America wants its flag to stand for more than greed, violence, commercialism, consumerism, social injustice and inequality, it needs to give substance to the ideas which the flag is purported to represent. Otherwise, a damaged, commercialised product designed to simultaneously display contempt, capitalistic participation and sex seems somehow an appropriate use of the symbol and a political statement exercised as free speech within the market.
