    Exactly. Vonnegut nailed that mindset when he wrote Harrison Bergeron.

    Or maybe they agree, but would rather let their bullies to the talking for them.

    Seems to be the case for so many people who choose to be on the wrong side of history. Augusto Pinochet, Fidel Castro, and Francisco Franco (who is still dead) all died relatively peacfully and at advanced ages.

    That dead guy at George Washington's feet is kind of a buzzkill, freedom-wise.

    Society is free to reassess the stories it tells itself.

    I'm glad they won't destroy the mural, but the systematic eradication of the native peoples of North America is more complicated - and much bloodier - than "westward expansion" or "manifest destiny."

    Systemic genocide by an Anglo Protestant racist culture that permeates American society today.

    That mural is straight out of Pawnee, Indiana, city hall.
