|DAY 1836 March 6, 2018
On this day, 1831 Edgar Allan Poe was.removed from West Point military academy. You're his only defense, he wants to stay. What's your argument going to be on his behalf?
my argument for Poe to stay in West point is simply this, as a former member of the American Military, notably the USMC, I know the need for writers in any war effort as one of the biggest helps a writer can give would be to generate copious amounts of propaganda.
And as any good student of warfare can tell you, that propaganda has been a useful tool in warfare for many uncounted centuries. The effects can range from the confusion of the other side to a misuse of assets in an area where it is not needed, or lack of use in an area that needs more.
But the first really good tool in the use of propaganda is the good use of writers, as they write it and create confusion with it.
