treason doth prosper

Reader comment on item: The End of Treason

Your article should be shouted from the housetops all over this land. Our educational systems have taught us that no system is any better than any other. Just today, I saw a bumper sticker which stated "we have been fighting terrorism since 1492" and had a picture of some American Indians. Our anglo-saxon Christian forefathers were bad, everything else is good - we have been taught. Some of us are slow learners.

Yes, the ultra liberals in this country do not believe that this country is worth fighting for, but most of them would not fight against it directly. However, since we are in a war of ideas, the liberals should be careful what they say, since their words may be arming a young person with a bad ideology. Oops, there I go again, there are no bad ideologies except for the one ideology that gave birth to this great country. Treason doth prosper on some American colleges and even high schools. This is why you cannot call it what it is. To quote Sir John Harington (1561 - 1612) "Treason doth never prosper, what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason".
