There's no doubt about it. Just ask Genghis Khan. He and his military could have conquered Europe. They combined superior tactics with superior technology. The infantry was no match for his cavalry. The armor was no match for his arrows. His forces murdered and enslaved millions of Asians and Europeans. Somehow, I doubt that leftist authors mention this all that much.

Exactly,there are several cases like this throughout history.I have about 1000 pages i have written in a binder i did for a class a few years back of empires and other conquerors.I got the best grade in the class,but my prof would not let me share it with the class.Said he understood lots of these things happened but in his word's some things have to be politically correct.So............

That is messed up beyond belief! It shows that some students are brainwashed by propaganda. You were one of the few who could see through the obvious and odious indoctrination. PC mythology is no better than racist mythology.

There is one reality with billions of versions.

I was pretty mad about it,but realized not much i could do.Got my grade and realized most now days enjoy being told how things are and were,instead of finding out the real truth.As i say having someone tell you how to do,what to do,and how to feel about it all makes being stupid easier for them.

Don't get me started on the Civil War. I read quotes from "the bad guys" and "the good guys" that contradicted what they taught me in school. I learned that Lincoln wasn't the saint that I believed him to be. That said, he was a man of his times.

Agreed lincoln was a good president and did good things,granted a lot of the modern stories have far over exaggerated his hand in them unfolding the way they did.A good bit of what he gets credited for was more secondary effects than his original purposes.

That makes two of us. No one could replace him. Shemp was great, but he was no Curly. Curly Joe and Joe De Rita were like the Gummo Marx and Zeppo Marx of the Three Stooges.
