    gilded age historians, the Dunning school, all unblushingly racist, just now being corrected by Eric Foner et. al. Then look at the incompetent quality of recent official history that accepts Time magazine as the factual record. The CT label concedes that the official story does not hold up, but argues for its temporary infallibility, the Warren Report as paradigm, only meant to last a few generations to protect the status quo, then get radically revised after it doesn't matter. The official story presents incompetent crime scene analysis. Lawyers, not historians, have the expertise and subject their opinions to critiism. Mark Lane, Jim Garrison. Historians brook no departure from the hearsay official story over which they have no special competence, and stigmatize the lawyers as illigitimate. This goes to straight defamation, alleging tin foil hat mental illness. Same as calling Dr. King a communist, or Huey Long a dictator. How the status quo protects itself.  The republic was founded and perpetuated by people who pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. The CT card protects antirepublican usurpers from adverse consequences. The greatest beneficiary of this waiver of prosecution has been the Supreme Court which slowly assumed dictatorial control just as Jefferson predicted it would after Marbury.

        The historian makes a profit looking backwards.

        And where there's a profit to be made, there's also an affinity with the ruling class to be had.

        When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered -- MLK, Jr.
