"Please, save us from true believers in fantasies."

Loki,

Thank you for the carefully crafted, insightful post. Isn't it interesting how distance paints the past rosy. Those of us who enjoy period dramas tend to forget that they usually portray only the lives of the privilaged, with their elegant estates, balls, and horses. The blight of great masses is artfully hidden from view. And most of us would have been among those masses.

The idea that we can impose American values on those who have no wish for, and may not admire, those values, is appalling. When someone purports to know what god wants, I cringe.
