This book explores how flag burning penetrates the collective consciousness and arouses latent social anxiety. Although the Supreme Court has held that flag burning is political expression, flag burning has been perceived as a symbolic threat to American society.

The contradictions of persistent efforts to ban unpopular political expression in a democracy that protects free speech abound in the key elements of social constructionism.
