1. You do realize that the entire history of our species has been one of conquest and annihilation...

and the peoples conquered here weren't exactly peaceful and loving of each other before the Europeans came here to bless them with their religions, politics, and diseases. And far more efficient killing machines.

To me, the myth of Thanksgiving isn't simply a feel-good story about how mutually gracious we were with the indigenous people, but a story of hope that we may some day evolve to the point where we can break bread together peacefully. It's like the WWI Christmas Truce-- we can rise above our need to kill and conquer.

But, when will we do it for real?
