I wanted to come here and repost this, in response to concern by another pede that this action amounts to "political indoctrination." I think it's really important that we all understand the distinction.

Learning about the Founding Fathers is not political. You have simply been indoctrinated to think so, and you are now projecting your guilt about it.

The Founding Fathers actually disagreed on just about every issue. Some of them were political rivals, and absolutely hated each other. (Aaron Burr, for example, shot and killed Alexander Hamilton while Burr was sitting Vice-President to Thomas Jefferson.)

What would be "political" would be teaching why the philosophies of Thomas Jefferson's Democratic-Republican Party were superior to John Adam's Federalist Party. (They were.)

But the premise of your hand-wringing wrongfully assumes that all of the Founding Fathers were of the same political doctrine. They were not. The one thing they did agree upon was that they wanted FREEDOM for themselves and their countrymen.

If we are going to have a real revolution it is time to fuck up the education of both hyper divided liberals and conservatives equally.

Hm. Quora? That’s some faggot shit.

Stop trying to categorize basic history (who, what, when, where) as “political.” It’s so contrived and so fucking stale. Not everything is about politics, so please for the love of God SHUT THE FUCK UP.

No, some faggot shit is ignoring the arguments made by PEOPLE using an online service and calling everything else faggot shit. You are right, not everything is about politics, it just so happens your arguments borderline on politics so hard that you are delusional.
