Those who win the wars write the history.

Those who write the history control the future.

The states will get there powers back at some point. That is the power of the knowledge of history. The U.S. is no on a sustainable course because of the division. No nation has ever survived under the conditions the U.S. in currently in. The purpose of the structure of the Constitution guaranteed no impactful divisions such as under the King or under the Articles of Confederation. As a sustainable national structure, this country has not progressed, but digressed since the FDR years.

What reading of history could leave you so hopelessly in the dark?

That is why the Virginia battle flag means one thing to the educated and another thing to the uneducated. And for starters, the proper identification of the flag.
