Anyone realize thats 3/4 of the history you've heard on tv or read in the paper today? All these little factoids you hear about the birth of our country?
You know they're mostly false, right?
Midnight ride of Paul Revere? Didn't happen.
The Declaration of Independence being signed today, 200 years ago?
didn't happen.
And every time they repeat all these things over and over and another kid grows up learning these FALSE things about our history... columbus discovered america....America was founded for religious freedom and freedom of persecution...
We are *making* ourselves dumb.
We are *causing* ignorance.
We are *perpetuating* the root cause of the vast majority of our societal ills.

It just makes me angry.
I have no gaddamned right to be so fucking arrogant about this...
but it makes me angry.
