12 The Emperor has no clothes!

13 The Emperor heard the people and shivered, for he knew they were telling the truth. He did not want to stop the procession, so he held himself stiffer than ever and marched on. Behind him, his officers carried the make- believe train.

16 History: A. An account of what has happened B. The story accepted by the public C. Furious debate informed by evidence and reason D. Its just one damn thing after another. E. All of the above

17 Beware of 2 things The side that wins the war writes the history. Truth is the first casualty of war.

18 The accepted account of the Civil War: The Civil War freed the slaves and saved the Union, which justified the cost in lives and property.

19 Remember! Beware of 2 things The side that wins the war writes the history. Truth is the first casualty of war.

20 The War of [Southern] Rebellion The War of Northern Aggression

22 Yankees 1.Northerners with a mind-set which was arrogant, unfriendly, intolerant, and self-righteous 2.A Union soldier in the Civil War

23 The [modern] American state emerged from the wreckage of the Civil War… page ix,

24 The Civil War, even more than the end of British colonial rule, represents the true foundational moment in American political development. page 10

25 To understand the causes of the Civil War look for the answers to these two separate questions: 1. Why did the southern states want to leave the Union? 2. Why did the northern states refuse to let them go?

26 Beware of: Whitewashing the official record Historical brainwashing Historical blackout Propaganda in the guise of history

27

28 Startling errors of omission and distortion mar American histories. Page 4

29 Traditional high school narrative history textbooks …actually make students stupid. Page 6

30 Our teachers and our textbooks leave out most of what we need to know about the American past. Page 4

33 Ministry of Truth: Records Department Job Description: Rectify history to conform to Party predictions thus providing documentary evidence that the Party is always correct. Winstons assignment was to intentionally falsify history to achieve greater Party control over the people.

35 Do you realize that the past has been actually abolished? Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten. History has stopped. Page 128

36 I accept the Party mythology. All the talk about party and politics is rubbish, so why let oneself be worried about it? I am not interested in the next generation, dear. I am interested in us, here and now. Page 127-9

37 The world view of the Party has imposed itself successfully upon the people and they are not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what has happened.

38 double-think The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in ones mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

39 Example of double –think Who won World War II? (We won!) What was the victory? (A great victory over tyranny because of the defeat of Hitler) Who are we? (The allies: The US, UK and USSR-- Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin) Did WWII diminish or increase tyranny?

48 The real reason for the brutal colonization of the Filipinos: Senator Albert Beveridge of Indiana: The Philippines are ours forever… and just beyond the Philippines are Chinas illimitable markets …The Pacific Ocean is ours The Philippines are the stepping stones to China. The Sorrows of Empire, Chalmers Johnson, 2004, page 43

64 The Morrill tariff Act [of 1861]moderately increased duties… Page 418

65 Some history is helpful to understand the forces that brought forth the ultra-high Morrill Tariff in early 1861… It was the highest tariff in history, with rates for iron products of over 50 percent; rates for clothing ran over 25 percent. It was a major plank in the Republican platform. Page 81

66 The most impor- tant cause of the American Civil War goes all the way back to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the dispute over the tariff between Mason and Madison. Page 36

67 Where Historians Disagree The Question of Pearl Harbor Revisionists… are unable to produce any direct evidence of Roosevelts knowledge of the planned attack. (Page 797)

68 This book contains direct evidence of FDRs involve- ment and fore- knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

87 (year 2000, 608 p.) In 1995 the Venona documents finally became available to American historians…

88 … Included in the Venona Secrets are the details of the spying activities that reached from Harry Hopkins in the White House to Alger Hiss in the State Department to Harry Dexter White in the Treasury. (front flap)

91 The number of rolls of microfilm shipped to Moscow from the NKVDs New York [communist] headquarters leaped from 59 in 1942 to 211 in 1943, the same year during which the American press and publishing industry were gushing praise of the Soviet Union.

92 The Russian agent in charge of Whittaker Chambers spy ring boasted to Moscow: We have agents at the very center of government, influencing policy. page 322 (Published in 2001)

100 I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens. The time is come, it now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship.
