An article I found concerning historical revisionism that GLPers might be able to relate with written by Robert Higgs.
Why Do So Many People Automatically and Angrily Condemn Historical Revisionism?
by Robert Higgs
Over the years, especially in writing for the general public, as opposed to my professional peers, I have been struck repeatedly by the frequency with which certain conclusions or even entire classes of conclusions elicit not merely skepticism, but angry denunciation. Again and again, I have been called a fool, a traitor, or an America-hater because of my commentaries on history and public affairs. Although I take no pleasure in these denunciations, I find myself not so much depressed by them as curious about them. I wonder why people react as they do, especially when my commentary rests – as I hope it generally does – on well-documented facts and correct logic.
