Oh, I agree with you.  Unfortunately, these days knowledge is dumbed down to popular opinion.

Twas ever thus. In college I had to read the book "Lies my teacher told me" in one of my classes. It's really amazing how much of history is popular opinion, and how little is based on fact.

"The truth is determined by those in charge."  -  John Twelve Hawks, from The Traveller

And it's always been like that.  After the death of Akhenaten in ancient Egypt, those who followed him tried to erase his existence.  Think of what the "truth" is in Russia and China, let alone North Korea.

This is why its so important to only fight for things you know to be true, youve seen it and verified it, not just been told it. I'd hate to battle over something I was told, then find out it was bs.
