This is what it all comes down to.
American history (specifically the true version) is no longer taught in public schools. Only the “progressive” (i.e., Commie) anti-American version is taught.
They are liars, cheaters and thieves afterall.
History was always my favorite subject. I remember when I learned that my peers in public school were not studying history at all. That was (for them) the second grade.
The public school system has been evolving since the sixties when they realized they screwed up in the fifties (We public school kids really WERE educated and produced the political awareness of the sixties), and they created Viet Nam to get rid of as many intellectuals as they could.
Lefties were installed into the schools and teachers' colleges pumped out more and more.
It's obvious history teachers have been made ineffective and they have produced the blm and antifa.
Economics is progressive kryptonite.
Always combine economics with history and conservativism can’t lose.
Even without a direct economic connection, the discipline’s concepts, such as unintended consequences, regression to the mean, meaningful causality, etc., can also be applied to a purely historical analysis to illuminate much truth.
These techniques ensure that history is truth telling and not wishful thinking, as it is in progressive historiography.
This is a great read and really gets me thinking. I will also forward this to a historian I know, hope to influence.
Thank you as always for your great ongoing work and posts and blog.
You may well be the best and most important blogger on FR, and handle it so well that you never even attract the anti-blog folks — those Freepers who often police bloggers who just excerpt, never reply on their posts, those clearly looking for ad clicks, etc — you never do any of that, so are always welcomed.
It’s harder more thoughtful reading without the excitement of “the latest thing to fight” but it is actually looking to subtly kick the legs out from under those destroying freedom rather than to make a made for movies roundhouse kick at the head that misses.
No surprise on your favorite books on your blog, Sun Tsu is subtle too.
On your actual blog the comments of those there (who are not Freepers) adds even more to your articles, so it is in fact worth clicking to your site.
In addition, just the scope and breadth of your work in all the articles you have written in the outline to the right is amazing and intimidating.
I can scarcely comment on anything because I am mainly a learner from you.
Thanks so much, please continue to stay here and post.
