A new promotional trailer for Killers of the Flower Moon dropped this week.


Set to release in select theaters on October 6, 2023, and nationwide on October 20, 2023, Killers of the Flower Moon is one of the most anticipated motion pictures in over a decade.


The Cast of Killers of the Flower Moon

Before you see Killers of the Flower Moon, a lesson in syllogism and logic may be helpful

Syllogism means, “A deductive scheme of a formal argument consisting of a major and a minor premise and a conclusion.”


Logic means, “The formal principles of reasoning.”

I have read David Grann‘s book Killers of the Flowers Moon. It’s excellent. I am Choctaw Indian in my heritage. I live sixty miles away from Osage County as the crow flies.

If you leave the movie and conclude, “All white men are evil,” then you have been propagandized and fallen into the illogical syllogism trap.


The Movie And Illogical Conclusions

  • 1, All the men in Killers of the Flower Moon who married Osage women for their oil rights were white.

  • 2. The white men who killed their Osage wives for the oil rights on Osage property were crazy maniacs.

  • 3. All white men are crazy maniacs. 

The above false syllogism will lead you to think that all white men are crazy maniacs.


The Truth About White Men in America

The truth of  American history is much more profound.

In the courage and achievements of men like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and hundreds of other Founding Fathers, we find a  more accurate portrayal of men of the Caucasian race.


Our great country was built by Founding Fathers willing to die so that their families and friends might be free. As Benjamin Franklin said at the signing of the Declaration of Independence to his fellow signees:

“We must all hang together, or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”

That’s courage. That’s our country.

The evil among the Osage needs to be a lesson for all time. But the lesson is not to denigrate the white men who founded the United States of America.
