History is taught so as to (1) instill patriotism and submission to the rulers and (2) make people hate the REAL study of history. Real history shows that events in the news are but the latest examples in a long pattern. NOAM CHOMSKY shows that "Arab Spring" rebellions have been occurring for 100 years (usually suppressed by dictators with US backing). CHRIS HEDGES shows how the 1% has waged war against the 99% for 200 years, with examples from the US, Russia, Germany, Yugoslavia, & elsewhere.
Chomsky's remarks were recorded at the "Russell Tribunal" in March 2011. Mike McCormick's interview with Chris Hedges (June 30, 2012) was broadcast on Mike's show, "Mind Over Matters," available here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/61120 . Thanks again.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "resigned sighs") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
