21. OK, fitting since you commented first on it ;-)

 

Thanks again. You're right, Colonialist/Empire building interests tried to justify that behavior with whatever convenience presented itself, Religious Intolerance was as good a means as any toward that end, as was Racial Oppression.

Native Americans were certainly subjected to that, so were African Slaves imported for economic purposes of subjugation. "Color" being a convenient way to identify the "Inferior" class of society.

We're today left with remnants of those particular behaviors, and some new implementations of them, by the same Economic/Conservative/Corporate interests who Colonized over past centuries.

Our long National involvement in the Middle Eastern affairs is a symptom of that remaining Colonialist behavior, with several undeclared Wars having been the unfortunate eventual outcome (IE: How did our Petroleum get under the sands of the Middle East? We MUST remedy that.)

Also symptomatic of "Empire Building" behavior, current Muslim/Islamic discrimination prevalent across at least the last decade of USA combined Religious/Political influence, essentially to Enable (rationalize) our involvement in those Middle Eastern countries.

Appreciate the supportive comments.
