    My country “encourages” students and members of congress to recite a pledge of allegiance at the start of each session. Has there been any research on whether making impressionable people swear loyalty to the state each day actually makes them more loyal? I’ve read that one technique for dealing with prisoners of war involves trying to get them to verbally renounce/give up on their country under the theory that making people say things will have an effect on what they actually believe, but I don’t know whether that works, and the two contexts are fairly different.
    I guess the ethics of making people more loyal by saying that they are loyal is an issue for your non-extant philosophy podcast.
