Go Shill Your Revision Somewhere Else

American history education needs fixing…. but it cannot be in the form of foolish revisionism.  As the educational community looks for answers to this problem, hucksters and con-men will attempt to make a quick dollar with their dubious products.  American filmmaker and woefully amateurish historian, Oliver Stone, is attempting to sell his new history book to anyone willing to listen to his highly contentious view of American history (He “blogs” for Huffington Post with purchase information prominently displayed.)    Why aren’t more high school students exposed to his ludicrous revisions of our history?

Uncle Joe was really a wonderful guy

Someone with a record of historical shenanigans…. like Oliver Stone, should be allowed nowhere close to American educational reform.  There are plenty of conscientious, disciplined, and trained historians who are willing to assist American students with learning our history.

    Amen and amen. And enough sensible amateurs to support you, I hope.

  2. I try at all times to put confirmed truth in my posts, but sometimes that conflicts with school textbooks and people are alarmed, think I’m only putting in my opinion or nuts. I try to explain that no matter what country they live in, the gov’t is going to control the teaching of history. With archives opening up and an internet of interactive information, some new facts are coming to light.
