    This might be a mixed blessing. Is it better to learn no history, or liberal revisionist history?

    “Very few things happen at the right time and the rest do not happen at all. The conscientious historian will correct these defects.”
    — Herodotus (484 – 425 B.C.)

    Here might be a clue why history isn’t taught: those darn tea partiers keep cropping up!

    “The budget should be balanced, the treasury refilled, public debt reduced, the arrogance of officialdom tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.”
    — Cicero (106 – 43 B.C.)
