Perhaps you should take your own advice and read more and cherry pick less. This controversial issues is a phony canard that is being played to invoke a subtle, yet complete, censorship of anything you disagree with in written or spoken form.<quoted text>
No one is saying anything like that? Do you ready ANYTHING on this post execpt views you can argue with?
Homework posted "I would bet that 100% of these kids have no slavery in their background but, more likely have persecution in their heritage but are left to feel guilty for slavery because their skin is white." and "I'll tell you the KKK has nothing on the American public education system.". You are so partison and one sided in your attacks that you won't go after them will you?
For you to say that no one is saying that shows how much you read and pay attention here.
I appreciate all the armed (and unarmed) forces do in this country. I have worked as a civilian in support of our forces (and continue to support them). My family has several members that have served. I'm guessing you think Schweikart's books are completely factual. Once again the far left (Zinn) is just as wrong as the far right (Schweikart). Kind of like evolution vs creation. Now why is only one of those "controversial issues" acceptable?
Please tell the audience what exactly is to be gained by silencing different viewpoints?
What you preach is censorship.
Not having read Mr. Schweikart's books, I have no opinion on what they contain or do not contain. I have read Mr. Zinn's book and it is not worthy of the time expended upon its study.
Mr. Zinn's book could best be summarized as a collection of topix posts, accepted at full face value as the truth, and representative of life in Springboro. If we were to publish such a text would that legitimize everyone's opinion and observations as history?
The fact that Mr. Malone continues to display an intellectual dishonesty in this arena comes as no surprise to those who have enjoyed his maneuverings in the past.
And Mr. Stuckey, as a former teacher in the same department, I wonder how many pages he managed to plow through of Mr. Zinn's magnificent work?
It would be worthwhile to hear these gentlemen's critique of the benefit to children studying "pop" history.
