Ted, makes you wonder how far Britain will go to white wash not only Islamic fundamentalism, but also history.

Public schools in the USA gave up teaching history probably 50 years ago or more. The real issue here is that there is a socialized school system. It needs to be pulled up by its roots. In many respects, this will make that system even less popular than it currently is.

What was that quote again of not knowing history and repeating the errors of the past?

How can they leave out ANY of those figures?  That makes no sense at all.

Guido, in the attempt to answer your question, I used www.ixquick.com and got a hold of this gem ...
The Columbia World of Quotations. 1996.

NUMBER: 48129 QUOTATION: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
ATTRIBUTION: George Santayana (18631952), U.S. philosopher, poet.
Life of Reason, 'Reason in Common Sense,' ch. 12 (1905-6).


William L. Shirer made these words the epigraph for his Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (1959)

    Questions to expect from the next generation:

"Third Reich? What's that?
And who's this Shirer guy? Some fiction writer like Fleming and Clancy?"
