  •  It's honestly very frightening (4+ / 0-)

    American high school history and civics is pure bullshit designed to make people complacent with what is a very imperfect system. And yes, our history books consistently gloss over the genocide and war crimes we committed against Native Americans, Filipinos, even German and Japanese civilians in WW2, etc, etc.

    And that doesn't even begin to touch on how it indoctrinates people into believing that capitalism is totally perfect. I will always remember how my history teacher defended Herbert Hoover and in retrospect it makes me want to scream wtf.
