The 1619 Project is a major initiative observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.  Read all the stories.

It is work such as this that throws me off balance. Clearly the NYT is a tool of the elites, yet, here is a story that exposes the fraudulent history of the United States as propaganda and undermines the contemporary narrative of a moral "America" as an arbiter of democracy, freedom and supporter of self determination.

I am surprised to learn that there are factions within the ruling elites that may not agree with the globalist and warmongering troupe currently using the idiot Trump.

Unfortunately, any independence that such factions might engage in would ultimately receive little forbearance within the ruling elites since they are so interlocked financially and socially that to tug on any end would unravel the entire ball of their racketeering.
