The LA Slimes goes into full attack mode on the US culture, going right back to the Founders and attacking them personally. History modification doesn't get much more stark than this.
The way THIS culture warrior sees things, if they are going after the very foundation of our society to bring it down, it's time to take the culture war into the next level, say, at about 2500 feet per second.
In the Second Republic, it WILL be a crime to bring such talk using history modification. History will be accepted in the spirit of the time during which it was made, not with the hindsight of people whom the Founders wouldn't have given the time of day to. The Founders, of course, WERE upstanding men of their time. The fact that time and custom has changed (for the worse!) does not alter the fact that the Founders held the respect of their fellow men (and no, the respect of the women did not count in those days).
The days of this Republic are numbered, and so are the the stylings of today's writers who feel free to believe that they are time travellers.
