One of the greatest things about our nation is that LaFantasie is as free to espouse his elitist views as I am free to stupidly muddle through wasting my time reenacting. He can post his rantings against reenactors on line. And I can post my rantings supporting "Living History" on line too. I have a recommendation to those who think reenacting is worth the effort: do NOT buy LaFantasie's books and tell other reenactors to not buy them. Avoid events which promote him. Oh, I know he will still make money, but lets' not have it come from us 'stupid reenactors'. He is free to despise us . . . and we are free to reject him.
Do reenactors insult true history? Pick a side.
