It’s becoming more and more important to put things in historical context.
That’s why I love when Marc makes use of his advanced history education. We wouldn’t be having the social troubles we’re having if we were teaching history like we should. History has points like this, about how the Pequots attacked and harried the English settlers’ Saybrook Fort:
Lessons learned during the siege of Saybrook escalated the Pequot War in Connecticut Colony, and indirectly resulted in the attack and destruction of Mistick Fort (May 1637).
Actual history isn’t of some oppressor group going through the motions of subjugating the world. It’s all sorts of people who did not know what the future held moving around the world and making decisions in real time, with all the good and bad that humans bring to decisions.
