History is the roadmap we all must study if we are to find a better route to where we wish to go. Roads are built by improving the landscape they are on, and so one must understand the faults of the landscape. Our nation is good and strong. But we have our faults. And so the roadmap of our future must deal with those faults or it will split wide open at the fault lines. We have done this in the past. I do not intend to see us do so again.
