I believe that what we are taught in pubic schools about American History reflects a political agenda. It is ignorant to think that history cannot be told in a biased manner and naive to think that the education establisment would not have any political motives.
What we were taught about Abraham Lincoln is a great example of this bias. Do you believe that lincoln was The Great Emancipator? If so, why do you believe that?

I was taught that, along with many other "historical" things that are complete misrepresentations of reality.
It only gets worse in college, and not just in regard to "history". Many of these so called "academics" are so liberally biased, I have to wear my rain boots to class to sludge through the BULLSHIT.1
