Doomed to repeat

Dave Budge has an interesting post about the importance of history. For some reason, the comments on his site are almost impossibly hard to read, so I will make my own brief comment here:

Sean Hannity's "Man on the Street" interviews this week included an interview with a kindergarten teacher who identified:

1. World War I as the war that won America's independence.

2. Abraham Lincoln as the author of the Declaration of Independence.

Abandon hope.

And the revolution was fought for no taxation rather than no taxation without representation.
