The article, entitled 3 Reasons Why the American Revolution was a Mistake, contains all the Howard Zinnish material you’ve probably read in one form or another, puts it together, and asks the question.
Tune to KMUD – Redwood Community Radio, Inc. this Thursday evening at 7 pm to hear Bob Froehlich and Julia Minton discuss the nature of critical thinking and why it’s important to learn and practice the process. Listeners will be invited to call-in and share their thoughts about critical thinking and the processes they use to form their own beliefs.
