How much do you americans know about him? Do kids in your country know who he was and what he stood for? I always had the impression he's extremely underrated not only as a political figure but as an interesting character as well.
>>580207 That is sad. He was the pillar of resistance against the imperialist politics your country now holds. Only a distant memory remains of what could have been, but I guess is no good to educate your children, right? That way they'd surely be able to see how evil their beloved America truly is. I hope I'm wrong and most Americans don't share your experience.
>>580168 No, but I read a lot about the Spanish American war, and we recognize in many schools that the whole conflict was really just an excuse to take Cuba, and that any concern over the welfare of the Spanish treatment of the Cubans was an afterthought. We're taught it to be a textbook example of Jingoism and Yellow Journalism.
>>580168 Kids in our country can't even spell the president's name. I watched a whole documentary on the Spanish American war to help a friend write a paper and I don't remember this guy. Sorry friend.
