“History is written by the victors.”

I started reading this at Yahoo, and could not help but to remember the things that I had been taught in school. Not simply the historical items but also the ethical implications on a historical level (yes, it is “a” not “an” check your MLA!)

Much of this I grew up seeing, if not actually participating in. As well as seeing the consequences of such actions. That said? This huge indictment of the United States is an empirical example of Historical Fallacy that also left out some of the truly egregious examples of our history.  Little mention was given to what went on with native Americans, both good and evil. Not a whisper about the slaughter of my ancestors, and other incidents that led to The War of Northern Aggression such as selective taxation. The list goes on…

And so, whether we like it or not it is indeed a truism that “History is written by the Victors,” complete with warts and all…

Let us never forget the utter international embarrassment that was the obama either.
