One highly controversial film, and its collective shunning, predates the current PC mania. The 1915 drama “Birth of a Nation” glorified the KKK and dehumanized black slaves, among other revolting elements. Cultural critics marvel at some of its artistic achievements, given the technical constraints of the era, but its content makes any public display cultural dynamite.

If we forget our “history” — both good and bad — aren’t we doomed to repeat it?

Every mature person should see the horrors of slavery, the Holocaust, the “War of Northern Aggression”, the Japanese internment, the Tuskegee experiments, the Trail of Tears, the bombing of Dresden, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki.

Sorry if it “hurts”, but it’s “history”.

We need it to remember.

Gun Ownership is the palladium of liberty.

The ability to defend yourself is the essence of the non-aggression principle and self-ownership.
