One of the reasons that countries fail is that collective memory is continually destroyed as older generations pass away and are replaced by new ones who are disconnected from what came before.

Initially, the disconnect was handled by history and by discussions around family tables. For example, when I was a kid there were still grandparents whose fathers had fought for the Confederacy. They had no slaves and owned no plantations. They fought because their land was invaded by Lincoln’s armies. Today if Southern families still know the facts, they would protect their children by not telling them. Can you imagine what would happen to a child in a public school that took this position?

Frustrated by the inability of the Union Army to defeat the Army of Northern Virginia led by West Point graduate Robert E. Lee, Lincoln resorted to war criminals. Generals Sherman and Sherridan, operating under the drunken General Grant, were the first modern war criminals who conducted war against civilian women and children, their homes and food supply. Lincoln was so out of step with common morality that he had to arrest and detain 300 Northern newspaper editors and exile a US Congressman in order to conduct his War for Empire.

On 6 July 1775, the Continental Congress published a document, in the name of all Americans, that was called “The Causes and Necessity of Their Taking Up Arms”. The document announced an impasse between Britain and most of her North American colonies, and explained that British North Americans would no longer tolerate British tyranny and were ready to take up arms against their oppressors. Written by John Dickinson and Thomas Jefferson, the document said, in part, that,

Know Nothing – The Reality of the American Experience

Oh, remember those “good old days”. Discrimination and ethnic exclusion was the norm and a political party stood for “red meat” self-interest. The catcalls today ring with a “PC” note, how dare anyone even allude that restricting immigration can be part of open debate? The memory of the American Republican Party fades into vagueness of ignorance, knowing history is not a requirement of the modern Know Nothings. If you are one of these marginal historians, how can you be expected to appreciate the anti-immigrant sentiment that existed over a century and half ago?
