Sure, there really is no clear title. Our entire civilization is built up on
massive crime, genocide, racism, ugliness of many kinds. Just read the real
history of America by Howard Zinn, "The People's History of the United
States". In the first few pages, Zinn describes how Columbus and his
mobsters raped, pillage, murdered and utterly destroyed the natives on the
islands- and America still worships that greaseball. <G>

the way most Americans are of Ronny Raygun-ism. <G>
