Pre - U.S. Civil War Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote a fictional book called " Uncle Tom's Cabin " . This was a propaganda book that even Abraham Lincoln refered to the Civil War being caused by this phony book . I am not sure whether this fact is being taught anymore in our schools as now everything is geared to teach kids to hate the White Race . It was certainly taught in history books when I went to school . The result of people reading this garbage was angry people " mainly Northerners " with no first hand knowledge of the plantations , became angry and took up arms against the Southerners . Thus the South was invaded . The result was approximately 750,000 deaths . And this is when the population in the U.S. wasn't that large ----Today big dollars are being spent to promote propaganda to create anger in the U.S. " and even world wide anger " based on lies . We can see it on this forum . I would like our members to give their sources of news . Perhaps we can get more people thinking in the same realm of what is reality .
