Fact and Fiction
History is filled with counterfeits and clumsy events if we study close enough. While they may or may not be true, it tells a human story and what is going on in the minds, and perhaps, explain the normalized imprinted bias, pride and preferences people are pre-programmed under. Most people don’t even question or examine enough or at all on the sociological hints hidden within written history even when they are false or fabricated. In 1492, ‘Native Americans’* discovered Columbus lost at sea. It is clear you cannot claim a place that was already inhabited. Just as you can’t go to someone’s house and claim it as yours and rename the brand of their car, and rebrand it as part of ‘discovery’. How did it take so long for people to realize that? Was it real education all this while or just herd mentality conditioning?
* Nothing was named 'America' in 1492, until a map marked the name after Amerigo Vespucci later."""
Christopher Columbus is the neighbor that will come to your house to "discover" your Porsche, and renamed it as "his Lambogini". - 1990
