Bruce:

Excellent, again. Look forward to the follow-on essays.

Re: “The Common Mind” – absotively correct. The assault on the common mind has been a) deliberate, b) sustained and quite successful.

Of course, this assault has been made easier by the concomitant commitment on the part of *educators* to willfully deny to their charges any real / substantive facts, data, and support for their cultural traditions. If one does not know it – one can neither understand it NOR defend it!!!

anyway, thanks again.
