Selections from The Oregon Trail - The American West as It Once Was

by Francis Parkman

  On April 28, 1846, Francis Parkman, who had already decided that he would write a history of the settling of America, and Quincy Adams Shaw, his cousin and good friend, embarked from St. Louis up the Missouri River for a “tour of curiosity and amusement to the Rocky Mountains.”  They were accompanied by Henry Chatillon, a hunter and guide, and Deslauriers, a muleteer. The little band traveled some seventeen hundred miles, meeting trappers, gamblers, woodsmen, soldiers, emigrant pioneers, and Indians, and Parkman eventually spent three weeks hunting buffalo with a band of Oglala Sioux.  The following year Parkman published his account of this experience on the frontier before the West was settled and the government’s removal policies endangered the way of life of the Plains...

Hitler's Youth: An Analysis of Mein Kampf

by Isuru Abeysinghe

Hitler's autobiographical book Mein Kampf, the official doctrine of the NAZI regime during WWII, is not a book that many would consider to read. Modern society is generally very well acquainted with Hitler and the ultimate outcome of his philosophical stances and will automatically denounce such notions based on a purely humanitarian and moral standpoint. The book remains illegal in many parts of the world and it rightfully considered one of the most powerful, destructive and divisive doctrines in modern history. While the book is often confronting in it's content it is still to my opinion an essential read because contained therein are the techniques of a master manipulator. It shows clearly that the doctrine of genocide-inducing hatred is not always - or even generally - a chaotic rambl...

California Valor, Charles Harold Gonsalves

by John A Johnson

California Valor provides understanding of indoctrination and propoganda to make Marines hate Japs. Trainees saw movies showing Jap soldiers raping women and throwing a baby in the air and catching it with bayonets. Another movie was about a Marine raid on the island of Makin. There were 90 Marines landed from a submarine. They killed 35 Japs and destroyed their communications towers. When the submarine departed, nine marines were left behind. They were all captured and beheaded on orders from Tokyo. One trainer told about Japs taking 25,000 Korean noses home to Japan to be enshrined in a Temple. Trainees sang songs: We’ll nip the Nipponese, We’re going to play Yankee Doodle in Tokyo, Let's Remember Pearl Harbor as we did the Alamo, and You’re a Sap, Mr. Jap....
