I would strongly suggest watching the movie: America, Imagine The World Without Her. It will help you to understand that people interpret history differently depending on their political views.

A very good documentary - - should be thought-provoking to those poorly informed of history. Such truths will be difficult for some to grapple with, but truth often is. History is made up of the stronger, or more sociopathic, taking from his fellow human, while laying waste all around. Exceptionalism isn't bestowed on any country.

Powerful documentary. A MUST SEE for anyone who cares about equality.

In this documentary, we are confronted with the uncomfortable truth that our lives of relative ease have been made possible by the centuries old exploitation of the people and resources of southern regions. A key idea conveyed is that the greater the disparity between the richest and the wealthiest, the more social unrest, crime, etc. in any given country or region. After viewing this film, I have a strong sense that there will be massive social and economic changes ahead. Oddly, China is mentioned in passing only. Yet that nation is becoming one of the largest competitors for natural resources.

This is an excellent documentary. Be prepared to be shocked & be angry!
It's important to watch the whole film & all the extras as the extras give even more information.
