It appears that as Malcom X stated once "chickens have come home to roost" and perhaps with all the violence so disturbing and unsettling to so many in this country the prophecy of John Brown that "only through the shedding of blood will
the 'sins' of this nation be washed". Perhaps it is that the untaught history of this country holds the answer to all this present and predictable chaos. From the boycott of the convention for the constitution of the United States through the
four years of civil rebellion (war) in the years 1787,and 1791-94 during which the president was encouraged by general staff members to storm the national legislature and seize control of the government and declare himself Emperor of America!
As far as social issues are concerned, perhaps the observation of Sir Bertrand
Russell over a hundred years ago of the american 'educational' system that it did
not teach the skill of critical thinking is key to understanding why unemployed
people who were never taught how to concentrate, develop emotional control, or
impulse control find themselves clueless as how to get a handle on their minds and
influence their own lives!
TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION AND PERHAPS THE TRUTH UNTAUGHT IN OUR INSTITUTIONS
OF EDUCATION HOLDS THE ANSWER TO ALL THIS!
