But are Americans really interested in learning about President Kennedy's assassination?
We Americans collectively represent the "new Adam." This is part of our cultural heritage, part of our cultural DNA.
You remember the story of Adam and Eve in Genesis. In the Christian tradition of thought, the story of Adam and Eve is also known as the story of the Fall.
However, for the "new Adam" there has not been any Fall.
As the collective "new Adam," we Americans are "innocents" -- as the biblical Adam was supposedly "innocent" before the supposed Fall.
We Americans are such "innocents" that we prefer to imagine that a coup d'etat did not occur on
Some American "innocents" even prefer to imagine that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone shooter who shot President John F. Kennedy with a magic bullet that also hit Governor John Connally, who was seated on the jump seat in front of Kennedy.
