The Importance of History — Or What to Say to People With Bad Ideas

This episode is our Independence Day episode: the Importance of History — both teaching and knowing it. The ideas here were sparked by the new book by David Rubin: Confronting Radicals: What American Can Learn from Israel. So, I give a little book review. Then, I give many examples from real history that confront typical bad ideas that people often attempt to hoodwink us with. Fairly entertaining, I think. A good story often goes across better than an argument. Hope you enjoy.

You may get the book here:

BTW, at the party I was fortunate enough to be invited to, there was a reading, in full, of the Declaration of Independence. I thought that was very appropriate. I hope to adopt that custom. You might want to as well.

Notice that David Barton has the famous picture that I mentioned on his masthead.

There are books for children and adults as well as video courses here : https://www.patriotacademy.com/

You may even find a live Biblical Citizenship course in your area. I recommend it.

Please go to our store and get my Modern American Primer. It is not a book to teach reading. It is more of a consideration of freedom and how to pass it down to our children.
