The Untold History

Just finishing Oliver Stone’s The Untold History of the United States, I couldn’t help but think that maybe, just maybe, I had had it wrong all my increasingly increasing years. That maybe we were and are the bad guys?

Oh and I know you’re probably saying that perhaps I should consider the source before jumping to conclusions. That I might want to keep in mind that authors want first to sell books. Even so, if even ten-percent of what Stone chronicles is true, then we’ve (they’ve) got some “splaynin’ to do.” Jus sayin.’

  1. Perhaps? I’m definitely saying “consider the source”. Oliver Stone, entertaining as his work may be, is not a historian.

    However, every empire performs some dire and evil deeds along with its accomplishments. America is no exception. Wars based on lies, slavery, genocide – we’re in the same boat as the Roman Empire. Now we are getting fat, lazy and ripe for conquest by leaner barbarians outside.
