Sorry, don’t believe it, and don’t trust them. Scrap the standards, period.

It’s just idiotic to think that any nation would ignore it’s own contributions to mankind and only focus on what other nations think of it.

We need to know our shortcomings too, but not at the expense of destroying national patriotism.

Some of these propagandist book enterprises need to be banned for participating for five years or so.

The Leftist that played them should never be allowed back in.
