Reply To: Ancient Greece in modern school curriculum


We’ll received. Did like the book though. After his 1st chapter opinions it becomes objective and positive.

Why are most, if not all, historians Marxist or extremely liberal? Is it just that central planning is easier to cover, study, research?

I just read Charles Mann’s 1491 and it’s premise says native Indians were more numerous, older, and civilized than previously thought. I think b/c of no written record to study. And a Norte Chico Peruvian archeologist in the book asked the question “where does government come from?” Saying it’s an invention in really only 2 places on earth, there and Mesopotamia. Everywhere else it’s been inherited or borrowed.

Thx, Jim
