Makes a good point, but much of the content is debatable at the very least.

Another problem, a serious one, is that claims are made with no actual source cites--hard to check up on whats not there.

Some of the conjectures seem "off" as well.

Was Helen Keller a "radical?"---hard to say, by the standards of HER time perhaps--perhaps not.

By "todays" standards--almost certainly not.

Heck the "New Deal" was seen as "socialist" by some--some still do.

Thats all of history for all countries.

Hell look at german history's views on world war 1 while comparing it to britain or americas.

Thruth is in the eye of the beholder....or was that beauty? :wink:


btw, you don't have to look at history. Just look at current events. Can anyone say CNN?
