The Left’s Big Lie

Apropos of media coverage of events in Ferguson, The Thinking Housewife quotes the highly unfashionable and totally politically incorrect Princetonian Carleton Putnam, writing in Race and Reality, A Search for Solutions, 1967:

Let a man be told incessantly that everything he and his forefathers had achieved was largely a matter of chance; that the poverty and backward condition of other individuals and races was also largely a question of luck—in fact perhaps even the fault of himself and his forefathers; that his standards of morals, fiscal responsibility and personal integrity were no better than anyone else’s; that his civilization was mostly happenstance and really nothing much to be proud of; that since all humanity were innately equal, all actual differences must be due to the other man’s misfortune and his own four-leaf clovers—let a man hear these things often enough and his values were bound to change.
