The facts of our American Revolution as instructed to our children grow less detailed every year. Why is that? The simple answer in one word: progressives. Yet, we mutually know more today and the plethora of information available with a click of the button would lend support to believe otherwise. Unfortunately that is not the case.
We sufficiently know many adults lack knowledge of basic facts, dates, and key players of the Revolution. The progressives are relentless. For example, in discussion with an acquaintance on the topic of separation of church and state clearly defined the ignorance of many. She believed the constitution stated it. If she spent 3 minutes reading, she would not have displayed her ignorance. Was it her fault to be wrong? After all the progressive “mantra” on this topic is “What is the First Amendment?” Teachers then answer “Separation of Church and State.” This is a LIE. The progressive attack on separation of church and state involves manipulation of the words and recreating history and attempts to make an inconvenient part of the Constitution disappear.
Thousands of documents and historic fact prove progressives wrong. How then do they change history? Omission and slogans in public schools. Teachers, you know, the ones provided more than a trillion dollars and fail to heighten the quality of education; yet, and more concerned about the bargaining table, than education. They teach children separation of church and state, its less time-consuming and less complicated.
The same abomination is true for the “history of the American Revolution.” How many people return to expand their knowledge of American History after high school? Knowing and using this premise in education and how people naturally forget with time…but people remember slogans like “separation of state.” Ah, but with a simple slogan people remember, even blatant lies.
There are indeed a few to whom the “lie” fails but it doesn’t matter because the damage is done. History is a funny thing. It is more interesting to those who have lived during “historic events.” How many recall 911, Berlin Wall falling, or the Challenger disaster and people naturally are more apt to share their wisdom on these events compared to the American Revolution? There is no portion of modern, or perhaps ancient history, worthy of diving into greater detail after school is dismissed for the last time.
Should the perusal of the American Revolution revive or rekindle or evoke some facet of thirst more information? Besides the regrets entailed in the contemplation of our past misfortunes may at least prove a lesson for avoiding the same mistakes in future. If people were knowledgeable of the American Revolution we would be capable of rising up to fight the tyranny existent in Washington today. Knowledge is power and power in the hands of the “three percent” can be very dangerous to those seeking socialism and global order. Especially in the present hectic age, when no political course can be safe when it is not framed upon principles or suited to the progressive interests.
