    Default "Our History as a people" or an excerpt from "America the beautiful"

    History is important and needs to be taught and to be remembered. Many different races and most religions have faced gruesome persecution and bigotry. It's not THAT we are teaching our children, it's the WAY we are teaching them. It's not giving them a since of pride in what they, as a people, have accomplished, it's hurting our children and making them reprehensible. Why would you continue to dwell on torment and pain instead of celebrating your accomplishments? And why should any one race get preferential acknowledgement, while the history of others, equally as abused and accomplished, be ignored?

    yeah thats why they're not social darwinist, social dawnisism is about viewing social competition as biological competition and is a laissez faire kind of thing where the idea is if everyone is left along 'the strong will survive.' eugenics is the opposite because it requires active intervention in society. the nazis couldnt be social darwinists because the jews had inordinately succeeded in society which was the whole point.

    Social Darwinism has many interpretations, one of which was used by the Nazis to justify genocide. Not that that necessarily invalidates social darwinism.
