History

History has a fairly simple understanding, but contains numerous pockets of data that have been performed, remembered, recorded, collected, disseminated, offered and run through a plethora of interpretive schools of thoughts: ideas, inventions, events, technology, people, places and even natural disasters.

An all too-oft retorted statement from history indeed teaches us “Those who forget the past, are doomed to repeat it” but I’ve always felt this was only half a phrase; which should be worded as “Those who ignore, don’t know or forget the past, are doomed to repeat it, as well as subjecting others to its worst excesses and abuses”

A 2008 poll by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, found that about 50% of the 2,500+ people polled, could actually name America’s 3 branches of government.

If I may steal a line from the Bible – “MY people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge”

While I’m not saying the average American needs to be a collegiate level history major, our country suffers greatly; at least in part, due to the sheer levels of ignorance by the masses, of items such as our founding, and standard civics.

This has to change, and it’s going to require every true patriotic American, getting involved, at some level.

WELCOME TO THE RAFON REPORT

What is R.A.F.O.N.?

This acronym stands for the “Rise and Fall of Nations”

What “The R.A.F.O.N. Report” seeks to do, is to encourage conversations comfortably, about many uncomfortable topics and/or subjects. Things that are typically seen as taboo, hands-off, sacred, sacrosanct, etc…

The R.A.F.O.N. Report uses two filters to investigate, disseminate and disburse information: In the grand scheme of things, this is about how Nations, Countries, Empires, and Kingdoms, do rise and fall through the control and/or manipulation of mankind.

In addition to investigating these numerous worldly Nations, Countries, Empires, and Kingdoms, The R.A.F.O.N. Report also seeks to point out and highlight where this same system of control, does infect and affect most of man’s institutions of power, influence and/or control.
