Huffington Post: “America Sucks”
America must acknowledge and apologize for the horrendous and violent atrocities it has committed throughout its history. In doing so, passionate objectors, maladjusted adolescents, and disillusioned immigrants may be more readily dissuaded to lay down their rage, their righteous frustration, and their stupefaction at the dark shadow of American history[…]
As early as middle school, children are ready to learn the truth about America. Instead of teaching our kids, as the Texas’ Board of Education has chosen to, that America’s history is an exemplar of virtue, we must reconstruct our national historical curriculum to more truthfully mirror our past. There are plenty of books and perspectives that reflect a more honest version of American history; Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and Amy Goodman must be introduced to our youth far sooner than college.
So, what he is saying is, the grown-ups in the USA need to pander to adolescent America-haters, by teaching them that America is an awful country and deserves to be hated… because this will make them stop hating America.
Yeah, that makes sense.
