One of the most disturbing things about our children and grandchildren’s education is they are getting a revisionist version of history. This keeps them from learning the lessons of history.
But it is not the only place we get revisionist history. I just took a course at Young Harris College Institute for Continuing Learning (ICL) on “Living & Dying under the Third Reich.”
In the first class the teacher asserted that right-wing conservatives supported Hitler and brought him and the Nazis to power. I asked who exactly was she referring to, since ‘Nazi’ is an acronym for the German National Socialist Workers Party, a decidedly left-wing group.
She refused to answer the question, so I asked for her definition of right-wing conservative. No reply.
