I think I've discovered why it is that the vast majority of Americans, and others can't/won't see/accept stark facts that are placed full in front of their faces.

There are varying levels of acceptance, acknowledgement that depends upon "you" personally, on "you" and your background, on "you" and ... .

Have a peek at,

View first, if you will, the 7th video as you scroll down from the top, entitled,

Dan's presentation at TEDxUIUC 2011
Dan's talk entitled "Seeing the world as it isn't."

Then go to any of the others. Highly enlightening.

@JTT,
"Stark facts" as defined by you. You have no idea that your own sense of AMerican History is deeply flawed in numerous areas. Flawed understanding yields flawed conclusions.

No, Farmer, stark facts described by the US government, by information gathered under the FOIA.

But remember, it was you who said that you were willing to view with an open mind, the preponderance of evidence. You have come anywhere close to that; this post is as fine an example of that as any of your posts.

Again, you've missed the gorilla when it was right there in front of you, beating its chest.
