    While I share Mr. Inglis’ hope in our youth, I find his view that “their learning was not tainted by history” astonishingly naive and, frankly, appalling. Perhaps Mr. Inglis is younger than I am and did not have the benefit of studying history in elementary school and high school, not to mention college or graduate school. It has been said famously that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. William Faulkner said that “the past is not past. It isn’t even past.” When i was attending sixth grade in the heartland state of Missouri, it was required that we read in full and study both the state constitution and the United States Constitution, that magnificent document that we ought to honor and teach, along with American history. That the teaching of history and civics have fallen out of favor in recent decades is a source of much of our current political impasse. So by all means, let us encourage our young people to take an active role as citizens but just as importantly, let us prepare them to make wise decisions by assuring that they are fully informed about the past, from which there is no escaping.

    Correction: William Faulkner said that “The past is not dead. It isn’t even past.”
