Truth in History

Truth  in history is a hard to come by. I will leave links and videos that can be used as alternatives to the “history” books.

Here is one to start off with;     http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/582763/posts

Thurgood Marshall  of the Supreme Court:

His was the dissenting voice at the 1987 bicentennial celebration of the Constitution; while other speakers praised the document and the founding fathers’ foresight, he said: “The government they devised was defective from the start, requiring several amendments, a civil war, and momentous social transformation to attain the system of constitutional government, and its respect for the individual freedoms and human rights, we hold as fundamental today. When contemporary Americans cite ‘The Constitution,’ they invoke a concept that is vastly different from what the Framers barely began to construct two centuries ago. … The men who gathered in Philadelphia in 1787 could not have envisioned these changes. They could not have imagined, nor would they have accepted, that the document they were drafting would one day be construed by a Supreme Court to which had been appointed a woman and the descendent of an African slave. ‘We the People’ no longer enslave, but the credit does not belong to the Framers. It belongs to those who refused to acquiesce in outdated notions of ‘liberty,’ ‘justice,’ and ‘equality,’ and who strived to better them.”

One Response to Truth in History

    Hi Susan,
    Thanks for commenting on yourconstitution.org. I have a comment on education.

    A friend of mine, Michael, has noted how the quality of American writing has plummeted, and says that it corresponded with the change away from the McGuffey reader to the Run Ted run tripe that we have as a result of a Rockefeller’s industrial litteracy campaign in the 20’s. I have not checked it out… but I certainly agree with you that TV is a cultural slide channel ever down. The most precious part of a human is their imagination. Reading allows space for that to grow. The tempo of visual input does not.
