Wilder Publications thinks that the U.S. Constitution may be unfit for children to read! The publishing company has added a disclaimer warning parents: “This book is a product of it’s time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race gender, sexuality, ethnicity and interpersonal relationships have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.” Similar warnings also appear on their productions of “The Federalist Papers” and “The Declaration of Independence.”
Once again we are subjected to the new realities of the ‘Politically Correct’ world. For over a century, the Progressive movement has been active in distorting American history. In the early 20th Century, Ivy League law schools (Harvard, Yale and Princeton) stopped teaching the actual Constitution and instead focused on case law. The Constitution was no longer a sturdy foundation for our nation, but a ‘living document’ that could be reinterpreted as needed.
New editions of “The Federalist Papers” are rewritten in ‘modern language’, as experts believe that we are too stupid to understand the original intent of our Founding Fathers. This dumbing-down of classic literature includes the Holy Bible and even Shakespeare. Can you imagine what ‘The Bard’ would think if he heard his work today? “Hey Romeo! Where the &%@# are you?”
Once again the battle of ideals is raging as the documents which created our great nation are twisted and distorted. Take for example the standard Liberal-Progressive argument about how racist the Founding Fathers were for only counting slaves as 3/5ths of a citizen. Even Frederick Douglass understood that the ‘Three-Fifths Compromise’ was not against slaves but against slave states and their owners, limiting their Congressional representation. Free Blacks have always counted as full citizens in determining the number of Congressmen a state has.
This latest slap against truth and common sense by Wilder Publications, putting disclaimers on the U.S. Constitution, The Federalist Papers and the Declaration of Independence is just the one more sign. Only by such methods can they continue in their schemes to destroy Liberty and Freedom. The distortion of our history, of our origins, is part of the Liberal-Progressive-Socialist agenda.
