On the Concept of Glorifying Our Leaders (Whether They be Lincoln, FDR, Washington, Jefferson, TR, or Even Reagan, My Conservative Friends); Building Monuments and Statues of Them, Putting their Faces on Money, Etc.
I hate it and I wish that it would cease. At the very best, these fellows were mixed and in some instances tyrannical (what Lincoln did to the newspapers, what FDR did to small immigrant businessmen like the Schecters, Etc.). And just this whole moronic notion of blind obedience in and of itself is dangerous. We need to keep our thinking-caps on, folks, ALL THE TIME.
