“The antidote to feel-good history is not feel-bad history but honest and inclusive history.”
James W. Loewen, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong

“In sum, U.S. history is no more violent and oppressive than the history of England, Russia, Indonesia, or Burundi - but neither is it exceptionally less violent.”
James W. Loewen, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong

“It is always useful to think badly about people one has exploited or plans to exploit... No one likes to think of him or herself as a bad person. To treat badly another person whom we consider a reasonable human being creates a tension between act and attitude that demands resolution. We cannot erase what we have done, and to alter our future behavior may not be in our interest. To change our attitude is easier.”
James W. Loewen
