    I will read the article at some other time. But from the excerpt you just posted that no way links striking workers to Nazis.

    As I've said, the FBI gives advice on all matters of international discourse and academia. You were right on only one of those fronts. States (certainly not limited to Cuba or any other Left-wing government) do in fact go after people that might have sympathetic political views. They may also go after those of similar national ties, ethnic ties, religious ties, etc. They also go after academics by promising them goodies. They also lure academics by posing as academics or an academic function to mine for information. And so on and so forth.

    I usually read what history is written from.

    Not saying I don't read the history books but I prefer reading the personal journals and diaries of individuals and scouring the national archives, federal depositories and research libraries.

    Which you read through your lens. You engage in a visioning or revisioning of history. I'm doing so on a weekly basis away from this forum. I read what my predecessors thought about a given subject, I look at similar or the same documents, I fuss with it for a while, and then I ask new questions. I then write my thoughts down.

    That being said, your socio-cultural viewpoints are inspired by revisionists, who were in turn inspired by revisionists. If you are (for an example purpose) a believer in some conception of history being a linear experience--either influenced by the Judeo-Christian narrative (beginning and end) or influenced by the Enlightenment (onward and upward), you would be influenced by revisionists. That's at the meta-narrative level. If you subscribe to, say, the idea that the American Civil War was a tough experience by which two groups tragically fought for dearly held principles before reuniting for the better; that too was a product of revisionism.

    Revisionism is a basic, legitimate process of the historical field.

    If you mean to say "bad history" say "bad history." Revisionism is a valued and necessary part of the craft.

    I wonder if Christopher Boyce and Andrew Daulton Lee were liberals ?

    Thinking back on the 70's and living in the South Bay and anyone who was in his 20's back then who lived in the South Bay back then either was or personally knew someone who was interviewed by the FBI regarding to the Boyce and Lee espionage investigation.
    "The Falcon and the Snowman." Boyce worked at TRW, just south of Rosecransl Ave on Aviation Ave
    .
    TRW had a security problem back then, big time. The big building that was next to TRW on Aviation was CIA West HQ's but the sign said FAA. The FAA didn't need a building that large with all of satellite dishes on top of the roof. But most knew what it really was.

    Where did everyone go at lunch time or right after work who worked in the aerospace industry around the El Segundo area, where they had good food, free pizza and naked girls, the Wild Goose. In the movie "The Falcon and the Snowman" the Wild Goose is portrayed in the movie.

    Both Boyce and Lee were liberals who sold out their country.

    What about the most infamous traitor since the Rosenbergs, John Walker, I wonder if he was a lib ?

    There's two types of history revisionism, the one I usually reference to is liberal revisionism which first was adopted by the left in America around in 1964. It's part of Marxist culturalism.

    BTW: If I'm reading someones personal journal, diary or letters they wrote that was written lets say in 1860 I try having a dictionary that was published around in 1860 sitting next to me.

    Sexual entrapment a common tactic

    Cuba’s communist-led intelligence services are aggressively recruiting leftist American academics and university professors as spies and influence agents, according to an internal FBI report published this week.

    Cuban intelligence services “have perfected the work of placing agents, that includes aggressively targeting U.S. universities under the assumption that a percentage of students will eventually move on to positions within the U.S. government that can provide access to information of use to the [Cuban intelligence service],” the five-page unclassified FBI report says. It notes that the Cubans “devote a significant amount of resources to targeting and exploiting U.S. academia.”

    “Academia has been and remains a key target of foreign intelligence services, including the [Cuban intelligence service],” the report concludes.

    The left knows where its people are-Academia, the media, and hollywood. I would not be surprised to find other leftist groups have infiltrated the same demo. Im reminded of Reagan's run in with leftists at Cal Berkley years ago.


    Nothing new under the sun...
    You're right. We should do something about these evil leftist subversives. I suggest burning at the stake, although I'm sure hanging will suffice.
