  •  "they hate us for our democracy" (5+ / 0-)

    If any group can actually say that it would be the Native Americans. And not just Democracy, the status of women in Native American culture was a challenge to the hierarchical male dominated property/class oriented culture of the Europeans.

    The Catholic Church of Rome crushed the Celtic early church of Ireland for the same reasons. Then they rewrote the history for so long that academics even came to believe that Matriarchies never did exist and could not exist. When you have the ability to write the histories of mankind, you may also use your own culture as a template for normal.

    This topic obviously deserves a whole diary.

    fact does not require fiction for balance
