Actually, PS and I agree on the only thing that REALLY matters...Studying History MATTERS and should be MANDATED by LAW. Not "SOCIAL STUDIES," but HISTORY. And SERIOUS study, not read a textbook for 40 weeks and take a test on dates....if that happened, we would ALL be smarter, better informed, better citizens....but hell, we can't even be sure kids today know how to READ when they come out of public High School, much LESS comprehend!
After that, everything else is is merely insignificant.
And BESIDES, to truly UNDERSTAND History, you HAVE to know how to argue!!!
THAT'S why it's an ART, not a boring "by rote" "learn the freakin' TABLES and shut up" SCIENCE...
You have to THINK. READ. QUESTION. READ SOME MORE. CHALLENGE, and BE challenged! And ALWAYS reserve the right to "Change your mind" in light of BETTER sources and ideas and arguments that DO come along, but not JUST "new" ones, BETTER ones.
I quess that is why we respect each other so much, WHILE we argue so vehemently!
Plus we BOTH hate "Revisionists."
