More on "Twenty years after the End of History"


(fm the BC thread)

Alexis,
What should one do if one discovers that one or two of the heroes of early American history who are written of in worshipful tones in history texts just happen to have been cruel, unsavory, and bloodthirsty monsters?

You work very hard to be very credible and earn respect so that your work can be fairly received and the flaws of the messengers of the past are not conflated with the worth of the messages that are relied upon to build a society with more wealth, creativity, liberty, safety and justice than have ever existed for so many in all of human history.

Mr. X,
(who is a Kremlin apologist or agent)

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Your Masters may have over reached and "woken up a sleeping giant and filled it with a terrible resolve."
