America, a Captive Nation: The Destruction of Monuments

The first American oubtreak of political iconoclasm took place during the Federal government’s “reconstruction” of the South.  The euphemism “reconstruction” is a typical tool of all despotisms, which use words like patriotism, human rights, people’s republics, reeducation camps, and social justice to cover vast confiscations of property, mass murder, and the corruption of children
