Words to understand..


“Madam, don't bring up your sons to detest the United States Government. Recollect that we form one country now. Abandon all these local animosities, and make your sons Americans.”
―Robert E. Lee

I never felt this man was a real leader till reading this. Yet for the many whom suffered under his leadership this truth doesn't change much for me.

This was true in the past, but the govt., has helped create the evil we are to fear.
The drug wars, racial tensions, economy gaps, the hand of govt., has always been involved..

Quote:
“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.”

―Douglas MacArthur

Source/Notes:
In 1957. As quoted in "Merchants of Fear: Why They Want Us to Be Afraid", Christopher Catherwood, Joseph DiVanna, Globe Pequot, 2008, p. 131

In a 1866 letter to fellow Confederate Gen. Thomas L. Rosser, Robert E Lee wrote

"As regards the erection of such a monument as is contemplated, my conviction is, that however grateful it would be to the feelings of the South, the attempt ... would have the effect of ... continuing, if not adding to, the difficulties under which the Southern people labour."


Three years later, Lee was invited to a meeting of Union and Confederate officers to mark the placing of a memorial honoring those who took part in the battle of Gettysburg, he wrote in a letter declining the invitation.

"I think it wiser not to keep open the sores of war but to follow the examples of those nations who endeavored to obliterate the marks of civil strife, to commit to oblivion the feelings engendered,"
