I have a problem with Barton material, decade now after decade, not sold to Red State public school curriculums, available only by private purchase, personal appearances, generally confined to churches.
What do you suppose the deal is, other than profit. David’s work is verifyable truth alright, and can be sourced, bringing audiences to their feet, but it goes NOWHERE for free and gets no exposure broadly!
I don’t like it, or what I am thinking.
Good points. It does make one pause, when thinking about all the “history” and facts that Barton discusses and why it isn’t more freely made available and spread through to the curriculum of private and charter schools, at least.
That said, here is one thing he talked about on the show, about how the kids used to be made to have at least 2 hours of recreation in school (like gym class) but that Jefferson and I think he said Paine, said it was best to be taught gun training at that time. So the schools used to teach about guns and shooting 2 hours a day in elementary schools. And there never used to be school shootings in the 1800s because all of the kids carried guns to school.
“As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives [only] moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun, therefore, be the constant companion to your walks.” — Thomas Jefferson, writing to his teenaged nephew.
