Wow. Way to drive a point home, Laura.

I remember reading the words of Mark Twain, member of the anti-imperialist league. He talked about the "home consumption" versus the violence that is truly happening. At the time, the people we were "civilizing" were referred to as our brothers who sit in darkness and whom we were going to show the light.

Twain spoke of how the Filipinos were beginning to show alarm at our attempts. From our generals, who commanded that our army kill all males above the age of seven, to the torture method of forcing Filipinos to drink too much water and then stomp on their stomachs, we haven't seemed to change much except for the modernization of it all.

Truly sad that so many need suffer for the violent tendencies perpetuated within our culture.
