Fixing Education in America is Job One

De Omnibus Dubitandum

By Rich Kozlovich 


I have a short list today with two commentaries.  Both dealing with Ukraine.  The links demonstrate we're facing an existential crisis, and insanity is now lauded as greatness, and that "greatness" has so many names. The Great Reset, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Social Justice, Racial Justice, Environmental Justice, Economic Justice, and more, all of which is destructive to the world's economy and social structure.   

The natural function of the human mind is to see patterns, and the patterns of life keep repeating over and over again.  But if we never read a history book, how can we possibly see those patterns.  History is everything, because truth and time are on the same side.

How many know who Alfred Dreyfus was?  He was a loyal competent French army officer who in 1894 was falsely accused of treason, tried and convicted. Here's the story.

Emile Zola, a famous and well respected French writer, who had to leave France after publishing J'Accuse!, railed against the outrage perpetrated by the French government in a show trial where Dreyfus was found guilty of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment (a predetermined sentence) to Devils Island (one of the most horrible prisons in history) largely based on secret testimony from other officers and of handwriting experts of a document that clearly wasn't written by Dreyfus.  Yet they managed to come up with assertions this "lack of resemblance between Dreyfus' writing and that of the bordereau was proof of a 'self-forgery,' and prepared a fantastically detailed diagram to demonstrate that this was so."

Later, a general staff officer, Lt Colonel Picquart, found evidence this crime was committed by another officer, Major Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy.  He was warned by generals to conceal this information, which he refused to do, and was punished by his superiors and even accused of forging the information that showed Dreyfus innocent and Esterhazy guilty.

Yet, It was clear who the traitor really was, but in order to protect this traitor and make sure the Dreyfus conviction remained:

"Major Hubert-Joseph Henry,  forged documents that made it seem as if Dreyfus were guilty, while Picquart was reassigned to duty in Africa. However, Picquart's findings were communicated by his lawyer to the Senator Auguste Scheurer-Kestner, who took up the case, at first discreetly and then increasingly publicly. Meanwhile, further evidence was brought forward by Dreyfus's family and Esterhazy's estranged family and creditors. Under pressure, the general staff arranged for a closed court-martial to be held on 10–11 January 1898, at which Esterhazy was tried in camera and acquitted. Picquart was detained on charges of violation of professional secrecy.

The uptake of all this is the French elite rigged the trials of both the innocent man Dreyfus, the guilty man Esterhazy, and a man of courage and integrity, Picquart, in order to get the verdict they wanted.  In reality the only thing Picquart was guilty of was putting honor, truth and justice ahead of going along to get along.  

So, why is this important?  

This is the pattern we're seeing as we watch the Congress, the American judiciary, the FBI, the Department of Justice, and every last one of the Departments of the federal government twist reality and truth to get the outcomes they're wanting.  

This is especially true for the January Sixth prisoners and those convicted of crimes they never committed.  As the tapes become public, this will become the America's J'Accuse!, and as the new committee dealing with this exposes the lies, corruption and what I can only call outright treason over this January Sixth affair, this will be America's Dreyfus Affair.

This is a far bigger disgrace than what the French government did to Dreyfus, because this is America, and these government agents need to be accused of the crimes they've committed, tried for those crimes, and punished for those crimes, and the departments and agencies behind all this need to be purged.
