Lies my teacher told me

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I finished an hour-long interview with James Loewen, and it was awesome.  It’s tempting to to suspect, “anti-American” of a professor who trashes what Americans have been taught in school about American History, but Lowen is an authentic patriot.  Loewen shows with references what I know to be true from university: books about Chemistry and Physics are often called: Chemistry and Physics, but books about American History have titles like: The American Adventure.  In order to sell their books the authors sell America, but Loewen objects.  I object too.  I am capable, and I do, enjoy Thanksgiving even though its origin is a fantasy.  Loewen argues Americans are still able to be patriotic even after accepting our hero presidents like Wilson was an asshole and a racist (asshole is not used by the professor).  Do Americans have to be duped into being being patriotic?  Must our National sins be glossed over to prevent rebellion?  Truth is better — always. »» about me  302-990-2346  twitter  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
