Subject: RE: BS: USA sliding into depravity (botched execution)
Interesting title. There's no depravity in our past; it's just beginning now.

We killed off the native population of North America and imported people from another continent as slaves, then killed millions of each other supposedly over whether to free those slaves, but did nothing to help the former slaves enter the economic system or to atone for the injustice done to them. We annexed half of Mexico, we massacred people in the Philippines in the name of liberation, we asserted and repeatedly enforced hegemony over all of the western hemisphere and later much of the rest of the world, including destroying whole cities with atomic bombs. But now we're becoming depraved.
