Political Correctness Is Ignorance and Leads to a Total Lack of Historical Understanding

 "Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity."--Robert E. Lee - Confederate History Books and DVDs - The South - Black Confederates - Southern History - Slavery Not Cause of Civil War - Right of Secession - War Between the States - World History - World War I - World War II - The World Wars - Bonnie Blue Publishing - Gene Kizer, Jr. - Charleston Athenaeum Press Logo

The Elements of Academic Success was inspired by the legendary book, The Elements of Style, by Professor William Strunk, Jr. and E. B. White. It is formatted the same way. There are 351 numbered topic sections in 10 chapters that cover everything a student will face in college, or an adult will face in the workplace.
(This post comes from "Papers and Writing," Chapter VIII of The Elements of Academic Success, How to Graduate Magna Cum Laude from College (or how to just graduate, PERIOD!), available on this website.)

257. You can not possibly understand history by using today's standards to judge the past.
