Proposal: National teach-in on our history

Since there's so much bogus history in the marketplace of ideas today, maybe we need a series of teach-ins that communicate the actual history of this country. Where there are areas of disagreement and even controversy, we face them head-on. Where there are outright lies in the marketplace of ideas today, we expose them. No agenda other than to face the question, What is our actual history as a nation? Is there separation of church and state or not? Was there an Indian Holocaust or not? It should be lively and engaging if nothing else -- though of course, there are many in the land who prefer myth to history. So you can be sure something like this will never happen -- unless some fearless leader, who appears to be few and far between, would take us by the hand to face our true past.
