American Lies

Woody Harrelson in The Guardian: “We grew up believing that Columbus actually discovered America. We still celebrate Columbus Day. Columbus was after one thing only – gold. As the natives were showering him with gifts and kindness, he wrote in his diary, "They do not bear arms … They have no iron … With 50 men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want." Columbus is the perfect symbol of US foreign policy to this day.”
