During and following the World War II era, Greenville County public schools, at that time loosely governed by the state, but managed by the citizens of the local communities, offered classes in typing and bookkeeping. The classrooms were equipped with mechanical typewriters. Electric office machines had not yet arrived on the scene, and computers for students were only theoretical.

Students were taught facts of history and government and pride in our founding fathers and heroes who earned and preserved our God-given freedom through the generations.

The German people were deceived by the National Socialists (Nazis). Hitler promised them prosperity and equality during a severe financial crisis. He was the leader Germans had longed for. He was charismatic, and delivered prosperity and pride … for a season. Ultimately, the reward was tyranny, war and death. The Germans realized too late they had made a serious mistake. There was no turning back and no possibility for reversal. The German people had chosen their fate. It could never happen here.

The Russians were tricked by the Marxists. They were promised a redistribution of wealth: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” Royalty, the wealthy and the peasants became equally deprived and slaves of the state. Only the rulers had privileges. Those who resisted were placed in reeducation or labor camps or killed. It happened in Russia and Eastern Europe, but it could never happen here.
