MUST READ ► My Horrific Experience With A Psychopath

Truth has always been the enemy of social engineers who wish to destroy Western culture. They rewrite history to suit their objectives. Most of us 'copy' their revisions. We pass on their flaws as if they were accurate and, in our minds, those distortions replace reality.

Just last night I watched portions of a PBS documentary that explained why North America prospered while South America failed. The conclusion was that redistribution of wealth (property) was cause for our success while domineering landlords on the southern continent prohibited prosperity. The documentary further concluded that the influx of Hispanics into North America was a positive.

It was analogous to watching a hard drive being swiped and overwritten by a virus. 

In essence, social engineers are effectively changing the past by altering our cultural memory. 

Here's a simple example: America has the so-called 'Trail of Tears' embedded in its memory.

Our memories have been purged of the Pequot atrocities and the perennial Indian wars that predated colonial America by centuries and were ultimately ended by the Trail of Tears. We are not reminded that Indian existence included centuries of warfare, hacking and scalping; bloodshed and murder. Nor are we told that the white colonists were viewed by savage Indians as just one more tribe to be hacked, scalped, bloodied and murdered. We are not allowed to acknowledge that English colonists protected peaceful Indian tribes by winning (with their help) the Pequot War.

Our national memory does not include the Seminole Indian Wars that claimed thousands of lives and produced far more suffering than the Trail of Tears. Rather, white Americans are portrayed as antagonists who egged on the wars.

We are not aware that Abraham Lincoln, grandfather of the president by the same name, was murdered by an Indian hunting party for sport as he farmed fresh land in Kentucky. 
  
We never consider that white Americans embarked upon their own Trail of Tears (called the Oregon Trail) in which they faced the same hardships as did the Indians with the added danger of being attacked by savage Indians along their journey. 

Our memories do not include the fact the Cherokee Chief Stand Watie actually encouraged the so-called Trail of Tears. Nor are we informed that many Indians who adopted Western culture were exempted from the excursion. 

Our memories are purged of the fact that, among those suffering the Trail of Tears, was Indian chief Billy Bolek (aka, Billy Bowlegs) who made the trek with $100,000 cash ($2.5 million today), along with his two wives and fifty slaves. Tears indeed.

The Trail of Tears marked the end of millenia of bloodshed, murder, suffering and oceans of tears on the North American continent. And that's the truth.

Make truth your friend.

  1. There were 5 Cherokee "chiefs" who signed the ToT treaty. ALL were killed by angry tribesmen shortly after arrival in Oklahoma. And NO "peaceful" or "Civilized" Indian was allowed to stay. I am a descendant of the Hicks, and we were as English as the rest, yet we STILL got shuffled off. What is most ignoble is, the Supreme Court said we belonged. Andrew Jackson and his army shuffled us off to give out very rich and fertile lands to his cronies. It is all about the nepotism/redistributionism, even back then....

    1. If I recall, Billy Bolek was paid $10,000 to take the hike and his cronies each received $1,000. That's $250,000 and $25,000 in today's dollars.

      Note, also, that many Indians preferred to adopt Western culture and were exempted.

      But the overriding point is: How many tears (and blood) would have been shed it the 'Trail of Tears' never occurred? The move effectively ended thousands of years of violence.

    2. No, the westernized Indians WERE NOT EXEMPTED!!!!! My family was VERY westernized. Yet we STILL got shoved off to Oklahoma!

    3. The Chicago Treaty of 1833 made provision for Indians who adopted Western culture to remain. Hence, we are still here.

      Again, "Many Indians preferred to adopt Western culture and were exempted."

      If fear you are getting your history lessons from PBS; not a reliable source.

      Example: Did you know of those who followed the "trail of tears" were transported by boats; others by covered wagons? We you aware that those who participated in the actual "walk" were accompanied by both missionary and tribal observers to assure humanitarian treatment?

  2. Aren't you an agnostic? So I gather that you exclude from your truth seeking the big questions lol.

    But seriously, through my work I regulary deal with people in North America, Europe, and Asia. It is interesting to observe cultural differences as well as identify those qualities of human nature which seem to transcend all cultures. One thing I have found to be pretty much universal to all cultures is that within each, there are those who respect and prefer to convey the truth as accurately and completely as possible. And then there are those who believe absolute reality does not truly matter as much as the perception of reality, so therefore they operate as though the truth can be bent, or excluded, to just promote the perception that meets their objectives.

    My question is, when it comes to history, how does one resolve conflicts and determine what the truth is when given credible but conflicting data?

    1. That was the challenge addressed by Immanuel Kant in his theory regarding phenomenon and noumenon.

      Absolute truth exist, but can't be fully known.
