Don't mistake my sarcasm as what I think is real.
But yeah most US schools are Government fed, ask an American teen who is doing history why the Japanese attacked pearl harbor and they won't give you the correct answer but the government approved one.
Also ask them what they think about the American-Filipino war and they won't have a clue either.
The American Government helps breed and control the "cattle" that is the people to their way of thinking, how else do you think the country has lasted so long on practically imaginary economies and a ever rising National Debt.
Ask an American what the National Debt is, and 8 out of 10 times, perhaps even 9, you will get the "that's how much other countries owe us". They don't even understand what it is.
Anyways there ya go.
And it isn't just America. Russia, UK, Germany, Australia and China do the same. Although China is doing something about it finally.
