The thought police …

… Little House on the Orwellian Prairie - LewRockwell. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

For the uninitiated, Wilder’s work is ‘the real McCoy,’ the living, breathing, organic material that uncovers the very essence of the young, impetuous nation as it ambles recklessly towards an elusive maturity. ‘Little House on the Prairie’ is an artistic work of huge historic importance that provides a first-person account of a tumultuous period in America’s history; essential reading for coming to grips with the collective events behind our national origins. In other words, it’s not all roses and picnics, nor is it meant to be.
It's really sad that all of us wonderful people alive today are descended from such really awful people as our ancestors.

  1. Hi Frank, I wanted to discuss the matter of Confederacy statues with you. Don't they belong in a museum? If we are to use the past as a guide, a museum may be a better place than the public sphere. Doesn't the public sphere imply celebration? Thanks.
