Education via omission of politically incorrect

It's no wonder we're so stupid.  Try to find a public school text that mentions Wobblies, or Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, or Emma Goldman. No wonder also that what we take as a great divide between Left and Right is an insider struggle between two shades of the same, huddled, side by side, at the Right end of the political spectrum.

Given the tilt of education information it is easy to think women's rights struggles, along with a lot of other lefty stuff, began with hippies, when it fact, the left side is an integral thread in our history going all the way back to Thomas Morton going toe to toe with Governor Bradford, and farther back yet.
