I was thinking about making this topic title about Americans, about us, in particular because I know we have been ignorant for much of modern history.
We act like we're the best and we act like we don't know why what's happening and the reasons things are happening. I feel that a lack of
knowledge of history is what caused my ignorance. Now I feel that history is asking many of the why questions that I've had. A knowledge of history
will also keep oneself from getting programmed into mindlessly believing what they are told by the mainstream press, or, the mainstream media, or,
mindlessly following everything in the present. A knowledge of history is what will solve much of our ignorance. That, and common sense tells us
that a group of elites are always working against our best interest. It wasn't until I had some basic depth of historical knowledge- where- I could
see these elitest roles play out, and, how they work against people and the masses, and how it has an effect on us.
I don't know if this is the right forum- if it isn't- please mods move it, but I placed it here because I think it's relevant to education.
