I have personally been down enough rabbit holes, deep enough, to know what most Americans believe about even the period from then 1600s till now, in America, American history is at least 75 to 85 percent USA approved, un adulterated bull shit.
Americans ignorance of history climbs rapidly from that point on.
Take this for example.
Julius Caesar is either blamed, our given credit for killing the Roman Republic, and founding the Roman Empire.
Both of which is bull shit.
As he is one of my ancestors, I took special interest in him.
When I got deep down the rabbit hole, I found, he was trying to reform the Republic, as the Republic, resembled DC today, Sodom and Gomorrah on the Potomac.
He tried to help the military veterans living on the streets, he tried to make the elites take a Bit less from the common people, let them have a decent life.
He was trying to make reforms he knew had to be made if the Republic was to survive.
So the greedy elites murdered him, killing the Republic in the process of their greed for loot and power.
Augustus founded the Roman Empire.
Julius fought them, so they murdered him, and wrote him into history as the bad guy.
Question Everything you have been indoctrinated with.
The ole Dog!
