Putting guns in schools is reason to recoil

America has always been awash in bad ideas.
The Founding Fathers spoke a good game about liberty but allowed America to become a slave republic, because they didn’t want to alienate the Southern farmers and merchants who helped bankroll and fight the war for independence against the British.
They got their wish for disproportionate representation in the early republic with the three-fifths clause enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Tolerance of slavery was not only a bad idea, it has had disastrous consequences for America ever since.
Right up there in the annals of bad ideas were the notions that women didn’t really need access to the ballot box, that genocide and forced relocation of Native Americans was “progress” and that “corporations are people, too” – an idea that got traction after the Civil War.
Most people who aren’t brainwashed or willfully ignorant know this about our nation’s history and are thoroughly mortified by it. We look back at bad ideas that were once taken as gospel and shake our heads in bewilderment.
