So it came as quite a shock when many of the most fervent disciples of 'we're so beyond that' thinking were the ones who turned around and helped make Dr. King into the closest thing to a god this country has ever had. Really. In grade school, my kids would start learning about him on the day after
So forgive me if I seem somewhat blasé about it all. I just have this thing about taking people at their word. If one of the reasons why we had to stop all the hero worship America used to indulge in was because that's just so medieval, then let's do it. I would hate to think all the lofty ideals of those progressives were really a ruse designed to throw down the establishments they disliked in order to replace them with their own. Nah, I'm sure it wasn't that.
