So you think we need more patriotism? Look Here

Last week, students on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis set up a Soviet style gulag to remind Americans tempted by socialism of just what too much government control can look like. The brilliant tactic of the students revealed a shocking insight into the minds of some who are teaching our children. From the student newspaper we get the following:

But James Wertsch, the Marshall S. Snow Professor and director of International & Area Studies, said that the emergence of communism and socialism are not big issues today and that new forms of nationalism are currently greater issues for America.

I am not sure what he means by "new forms" of nationalism or "greater issues" but the last time I checked it was leftist groups that were killing civilians, not the tea partiers.

So if you think that nationalism is a greater issue than creeping socialism, please return to your study through wikipedia. If you think what we need is for our children to be taught a deeper appreciation of the unique greatness of our Country, then check out the website of Free to Be.
