We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I think there is an unstated premise that underlies a lot of the desire to suppress the teaching of Western European history and culture. Basically, it is that the topic has been too well studied, too well documented, and too well explained. There are two many explanations that have been competing in the world of ideas for too long.
Remember that Marxist analysis sees and allows only one correct interpretation of history: the struggle between oppressor and the oppressed. But even a rudimentary introduction to Western Civ shows that very often the driver of history was the struggle between two privileged groups over who got to be the next oppressor. The life of the yeoman farmer probably didn't change much for all of the machinations of the Spartans and the Athenians.
It is much easier to assert that the people of Pre-Columbian Meso-America, Pre-Colonial Sub-Saharan Africa, or Southeast Asia were peaceful folk who lived in harmony with each other and with nature if the students haven't been bombarded with so much evidence to the contrary, in a way you can't say that the Anglos and Saxons were peaceful before colonization by the Romans or even Normans.
