The 'educational system' in the U.S. (I don't use the term 'America' in reference to the U.S. as America actually includes everything from Canada to Chile, but don't tell that to a USAmican) is essentially 'daycare' and all that's taught is enough to pass 'assessment' tests, which are used to determine future funding for schools. If assessment scores are high at a given school, then no additional funding is needed as that school is apparently doing well enough with what it has. If scores are low, funding is cut as punishment. Logical, no? This is part of what's called 'No Child Left Behind' and serves as a fine example of double-speak. Nobody is taught to think. Students are prepared for servile careers and a life of unquestioning obedience to power. Increasingly, only those with money, and lots of it, can afford college, and even a college education prepares most only to consume mass quantities of alcohol and drugs and engage in various types of sexual or criminal activity, or both.


The history referred to in your post might be more widely known in the U.S. if it had been included in a Hollywood blockbuster with a dashing leading man a fetching leading lady.


Unfortunately for the rest of the planet, USAmicans may never realize that the U.S. is not the be-all and end-all of the world.

    What is in the well of your heart must come up in the bucket of your mouth (Matthew 12:34). Your words will minister either grace or disgrace.

    "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone" (Colossians. 4:5 NIV).

    The same God who gave birds the power of song gave you the power of speech. Grow, therefore, in conversation that is commendable. "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."

    Perhaps it is America's greater God centered view as opposed to the more athiestic non-American co-inhabitants of this Earth that explains the vitriol of our anonymous fellow contributors.
