11. I believed that for many years

Because thatís what I was taught.

Then I learned to think for myself.

As it turns out, not everything I was taught (by other people OR myself) turned out to be accurate.

Turns out, Robert E Lee was an asshole. Sure, there were Confederate officers who were objectively worse human beings. But Lee was a traitorous slave-owning piece of shit, and Iím sorry I was wrong for so long. Even LEE died thinking he was a traitorous piece of shit.

I almost feel sorry for people like General Kelly. Lifelong professional soldiers arenít top of the list of stereotypes of ďpeople opening to questioning traditional society.Ē
