    This idea that some on the Left advance that the world was a nice rational, peaceful  and just place before the United States messed it up is as nutty as anything the wingnuts can come up with.

    The history I have read has human beings killing each other, continuously, on every inhabited piece of land on the planet. The concepts of tribalism, imperialism and colonization predate the United States and the rise of the West. For example, do you understand the difference between Sunnis and Shites? If you are reading history, then you should know the relevance of differences to conflict in that part of the world.

    So while that list of yours is true, it is insufficient by any historical measure.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.
