Unless We Learn Our History, We're Doomed to Repeat It
Preface: I am a patriotic American who loves my country. I was born here, and lived here my entire life.
So why do I frequently point out America's warts? Because - as the Founding Fathers and Supreme Court judges have explained - we can only make America better if we honestly examine her shortcomings. After all:
Only when Americans can honestly look at our weaknesses can we become stronger. If we fail to do so, history will repeat ..."Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."
While Americans rightly condemn the Nazis as monstrous people, we don't know that America played both sides ... both fighting and supporting the Nazis.
Americans also aren't aware that the Nazis were - in part - inspired by anti-Semites in America.
