Girl speaks the truth.
Wars have more explosions and swordfights than peace.
I do like swordfights.
I luvs me teh swordfights.
Girl does not speak truth. Where is this “steady course of civilization and culture” of which she speaks?
Naive little Girl.
Wars are a part of history just as much as peace is. In fact, the word peace means nothing without conflict to explain what such a concept is, and of course, the same could be said of war in regards to peace. Wars a not all of history, yes; but a gap in history? No. Still, any history class teaching only wars is teaching only a half truth.
I’ve always made a point not to listen to anything I’m told in history class. I refuse to pass judgement until time machines allow me to see for myself.
Lately I have been noticing how much has been left out of the history education I received in school. It has the distinct tang of being whitewashed. I recently learned that we tested nuclear weapons at some point and thousands of native Australians died. You still can’t go there and it is an important area for their religion.
American history is strange. I don’t know that it’s false, but it seems like things were left out.
But I suppose that’s to be expected. To incite the wrath of Tritus, the winners write the history books.
god i could use a piece of that
