What Does 50 Years Mean?

Posted to Poetry and Politics

In comparison to American self-critiscisms that last into the hundreds of years?

Whether there aren't ANY similarly self-critical societies in this world is not the point here. When was the last time you read a book about another nation as self-critical as our books in print? Walk through a bookstore and you can see examples of this plain as day. Who wrote the "Rape Of Nanking"? Iris Chang is Chinese. Fine, show some relative examples. You may be right.

Please stay on topic. If you want to make a new post about the Right that is similar, go right ahead. But I'm asking you for more on THIS topic.
