I was lucky then. My U.S. History class was taught by a complete non-conformist. I think we actually read maybe 10 pages out of the whole book,
because he said that the book was filled with half-truths and lies. Most of the class time was spent discussing and dissecting things like
corporation control of the media, government, and basically everything else in the U.S., along with how all sides of WWII and the cold war used
exaggerated and sometimes false propoganda to further their own agendas. He also went over things like the destruction of the environment,
materialism, genetically engineered food, pollution, and the ignorance and laziness of people today. But we still learned about the usual stuff that
U.S. History classes learn about.
I took that class my junior year, and right now i've just graduated high school. I'm glad I had him for a teacher because even though I didn't
agree with everything he said, he indirectly led me to ATS and other web-sites, where I feel i've learned more than anything any high school or even
college class can teach me.
