Very interesting. When you hear so much about certain people and there's no face behind the name, you start to make assumptions, so after reading that article I learned a lot. good work!

I so <3 Tom Barr!

I have this same "problem" with history all the time. People cling to their misconceptions (and crap they've "learned" from novels) and simply refuse to accept documented facts no matter how much evidence you present.

So were they "slaves" or were they "enslaved people"(eh , you mean they are real Humans??)"

Language can be used to manipulate and dehumanize, and personalize things that are not personal. The same lack of logic either conscience or sub can be used to create myths in any area.

"Sounds good, must be true."

Still, if you wanna be honest with yourself about aquatic plants, maybe you can use that same passion to work on the other aspects of self improvement and be a more clear thinker overall?? Plants can teach you a thing or two, or any passion if you dig deep enough I reckon.

Tom Barr
