      And the party that is doing it is imploding.
  • Hulk is right. We should rewrite history textbooks to be more uncompromisingly honest and unbiased. *** That being said: in fact a considerable movement in that direction has happened since I was in school. But there's plenty of room for further improvement.

      This "movement" that you speak of...does it involve destroying historical monuments? Or do you speak of CRT and the non-gender movement? Which one of these would you consider "honest and unbiased"?

      1465: read the question. Then: read my answer. It's a movement toward history books being "more uncompromisingly honest and unbiased". FOR EXAMPLE: just look at the typical 1960s American history textbook treatment of Native Americans, slavery, the Hamilton-Burr duel, the Japanese-American War (no longer so-named), or the Cold War, and compare it to modern textbooks. Yes, we have the modern problem of "political correctness", but IMO we had worse problems with the bias of school history textbooks back in the 60s.
