Un-Learning What I "Knew"

Washington Nearsider: "I don't remember what happened, so I rely on the reports I can read. They are - almost invariably - written by the media..."

I am still un-learning what I "knew" about Viet Nam, Reagan, Nixon, and so much else.

I was born in a GOP home - had my pic taken with Goldwater - grew up in a strong GOP community. I was never "liberal," was raised to respect the Constitution and the rule of law, hated Communism and was always proud of my country, yet still the infiltrators and propagadists warped my understanding, and my very cognitive processes. I was Cronkited.

Relatedly, much thanks to the horde knowledge and perspective in helping with my de-programming.
