Program #ZINH031. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on February 06, 2004.
Lincoln said, "You may fool all the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can't fool all of the people all the time." Perhaps he should have added the caveat, if you don't know history you can all fool all the people all the time. Many Americans seem afflicted with an inability to remember the past. Just three decades ago a president was impeached for breaking into an office building. Today, another president breaks into a country and nary a peep is heard. Gore Vidal calls the USA, the United States of Amnesia. Without an appreciation and respect for history people are vulnerable to manipulation and deceit.
