Obviously all that ever happened cant be recorded, like how many birds in flight at any one time. Fortunately there are some decent historians that record some decent factual history, as best they can from what archives they can get, or if they were there, etc. Otherwise, we wouldnt be able to talk about anything.
Without being both complete and accurate (how can we avoid the vagaries of prejudice?) ... it is bullshit. Propaganda by me, or by the Church, or by the government. It isn't turtles all the way down, it is bullshit all the way down. So did you take the Red pill, the Blue pill, or both? Pretty sure you took the Red pill ;-)
Now finding myself making shit, and thinking, speaking and writing shit, every day ... can't see anything wrong with that. The bullshit long ago got deeper than my eyebrows.
But I do love a good story. And I accept it as that, i don't need to prejudice it by calling it what it is. Why traumatize the toddlers here?
