Truth when spoken, rarely heard...
Reviewer frizman
 July 22, 2010
As the preceding review alluded to, this is quoting 'source' materials covering anti-establishment views all the way back to the time of Columbus. The 'leftist' interpretation of the previous reviewer of course reveals his bias as a 'conservative', at least. To choose a kind and fairly unloaded term. It is important to hear voices other than Presidents and Tycoons, and this revealing program serves that purpose, at the time pointing out the incontrovertible facts of genocide, slavery and imperialism as practiced by this 'republic' since it's inception. To label the basic facts of history as 'leftist' is an unfortunate betrayal of the principles our founders voiced, if all too often ignored. An important addition to a clear view of the mixed influences and political realities of our History. A closed mind is a dark tomb......

Less leftists please!

It seems every day there is a new bit of left wing hate in my inbox. How about something refreshing like actual history or something I could "learn" out loud rather than being "brainwashed" out loud by socialist commentary?
