For most Americans, the history of the United States is built on a set of long-accepted beliefs about events, each of which resonates in the nation's collective memory. But what if those beliefs, however familiar, don't really tell the whole story? Our knowledge of history - or what we believe to be history - is the lens through which we view and interpret the world. And when that lens is distorted with misleading information, it has powerful effects on how we perceive the present and how we make decisions in the future, from choosing whom to vote for to interpreting the latest developments in today's news and opinion pieces.

Its the truth about the lies we were taught in school about American History. It clears up all the confusion. I feel so much smarter and not so much a patsy. If you want to not be stupid about what you think you know about your country and the rest of the world, in fact, watch these four DVDs. You will feel informed and empowered for once about where you live and pay taxes.
