Can we talk about this for a second? Because this is exactly how history in the US is taught. Since I went to college, I’ve learned dozens of “facts” I’d been taught about the US military and our wars were complete and utter falsehoods made to make us appear the heroes. Every time I watch ATLA I discover more and more statements about the world around us and I just love it.
or you know could be about actual facist states that brainwash their people like North Korea.
jfc stop trying to be so 3 edgy 5 me by hating your own country and acting like they’re the greatest evil on earth
When I did history in the UK at the age of fourteen we were taught to analyse sources of information to try and discover what actually happened. We were taught to question the information given to us and make our own mind up. My first SAT class we had to analyse information about an incident during the First World War and most of the class came to the conclusion that the British government had probably sunk a US passenger ship, made it look like the Germans did it to get the yanks to join the war… No education has to be biased or nationalist and any level of doctrination is damaging.
The saddest thing is they are changing the UK curriculum to be like the one here in Spain and in most countries of just learn these facts we tell you turning everyone into unquestioning idiots.
