Historical Negativism, as explained in the book entitled, “Jefferson Lies” written by David Barton, is a steady flow of belittling and demeaning portrayals of Western heroes, belief, values, and institutions.
“An accurate presentation of history depends on telling the good, the bad, and the ugly about any event, person, or period, but negativists stress the bad and ignore the good.”
They identify every blemish that has appeared on the face of the country over the last four hundred years while ignoring the good that has been accomplished that makes America the envy of peoples around the world.
Very seldom is the whole truth told, even when someone has the best intentions. Time, space and poor research often gets in the way of proper reporting.
