    We're on the same side.  :)

    And 2010 is hardly "history" when it comes to judging GWB's 2001-2009 reign of error.

    My point is just that it's little comfort to all those damaged by injustice to tell them that "history is on their side" or "history will judge their tormentors harshly."

    I didn't say it wasn't true.  I just said it's not comforting here and now. :)

      It isn't much comfort to wait for history...

      We need to keep the pressure on so that change happens quickly.  Those not suffering the discrimination will always claim "it's too soon, just wait for your time".  Hell, even some of those that are oppressed get convinced that a slow approach is better.  You know what -- BULLSHIT!  Change can occur quickly, just look how quickly we went in the past few years from the majority of the public being against civil rights for gays and lesbians to now having about half the general public being ok with same sex marriages and three-quarters for allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military.
