RE: WTF?: Prof Won't Back Down On Comparing WTC Victims To Nazis
You are absolutely right. In fact, the whole system for dealing with Indians along the Canadian border in New Hampshire, was the same one passed down by the British. The only difference was we didn't get blankets infected with smallpox anymore. In fact, the British modelled it on the way they treated the Irish. The school my great grandfather taught at was operated by the Presbys. In New England they were immensely successful - there are some small pockets of actual Indian culture left in Maine, but for the most part they have been completely absorbed - and/or exterminated.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
