Then again I think this reality goes to the main point of the issue, that most people simply are 5 minute politicos with almost no historical knowledge at all. That explains our modern culture rather well frankly. We have 23 year old women screaming about "What this country stands for" who couldn't for the life of them tell you where Poland is on a map. That is our current situation. Horrifying is a moderate way to describe it.
If you told most Americans Egypt was run by Africans, they'd outright believe it. These are the same people that have 'strong feelings' about critical issues to the country. It's no wonder why multicultural societies collapse on themselves. All views merge into a politically correct, 'Feel Good' nothingness with no historical knowledge because the people that have actual historically succinct views are condemned as radicals thanks to everyone else's view of history being nationally sanctioned History Channel documentaries.
