We’ve recently posted a series inspired by a Lincoln Journal Star on July 4 entitled
Part one points out that the author of the LJS article attempts to appear unbiased, yet he adopts a very particular point of view. It is the same point of held by the majority of politicians, academics, and elites.
Part two points out a number of inaccuracies found in the article and how these inaccuracies are typically used by revisionists to shape an impression of history.
Part Three: “Whose Side ARE the Founders On? Easy.”
Part three lays out the fallacy put forward by the author – there is no clear answer about whose side the Founders were on.
And there are two issue specific posts:
Ignorance is Bliss? No. Ignorance is Ignorance.
This article focuses on the importance of studying history through the reading of primary sources, instead of the standard method used in government run schools today and how it leads to ignorance of history.
This article refutes one of the “subtle” concepts found in the LJS article; the Founding and the Founders are perhaps morally suspect because slavery was not abolished during the writing of the Constitution.
We intend to continue adding material related to this subject. Look here for updates. Since GiN’s mission includes promoting Constitutional, limited government as originally intended by the Founders, pointing out contrary information, particularly that distributed by Lincoln, Nebraska’s “paper of record”, is an important.
