Twenty-first century America is paying a price for leading Allies to victory in World War II and for the Supreme Court’s 1954 decision segregating the schools, proving the old adage that even the best deeds do not go unpunished.
Maybe raising questions about two of America’s most renowned events in the last century is not the best way to introduce a new web site – a blog, if you prefer to call it that – but the unconditional surrender of the Axis powers 70 years ago and the strong stand for racial justice decided 61 years ago reverberate in today’s headlines — not always in positive ways.
As we Watch the Circus of public events go by, adding our own sometimes sardonic, occasionally humorous, and often serious commentary on the parade, we are alarmed at how some of the great events in our history are misinterpreted, abused or ignored in what is so far a very unpromising beginning to the 21st Century. And it is not just the right that causes this alarm. Liberals also have their blind spots.
