How History is 'hidden'

Imagine an average 6th grade class.  The kids are between 11 and 12.  They’ve spent over half their life in school.

For them,  school is like a prison/job where they have to go and stay between 9 am and 3 pm.

In History Class the teacher hands out an enormous book.  This book is their text.  

“Don’t worry,”  the teacher says brightly,  “we aren’t going to read the whole book!”

The kids sigh with relief.

The teacher says;

 “I know the book is very heavy.  Those who don’t want to carry it home can leave it in this locker which I’ll lock each day as you leave to keep the books safe.”

The kids know that if they don’t return their texts at the end of the year they will have to pay for them.  This book looks like it costs the same as a television.   Almost all decide to leave it in the locker.

The teacher says;

 “You will all have a study period of 30 minutes just before lunch break, so can read the text and answer the questions.”

The kids smile, they can do their homework at school!

The teacher then instructs:

“The first assignment is to read Chapter Ten… only pages 100 to 105..”

The kids sigh happily in relief.

“And answer questions one, two and three on page 121.”

The kids breathe.  The pressure is off.  Theydon’t have to read that whole text, they don’t have to answer all the questions.   

This example is to explain why, with all the information available, people believe the lies, the propaganda, the cut and pasted history.

As  demotivated 6th Graders,  given a text containing all the history there is, the public is grateful to have it truncated and served in tiny spoonfuls.

This is why, although available since the 1500s few people have read the ‘Captain’s Log’  written by Columbus.  

In it, he specifically states that the native population of the ‘New World’  told him of Black skinned people who visited before he arrived.  

Those visitors carried gold tipped spears.  The chemical combination places the source of the gold in Guinea.
