just because your country is rich and democratic now, doesn't mean that the US got the prosperity without violated human rights
how many Indians, Black people and Asians were sacrificed to get to the US condition now?
No sense in living in the past, that can’t be changed. Those before us have attempted to make amends to the Native Americans (they receive wonderful educational, food, housing, and other related benefits upon verification of heritage). Slavery isn’t exactly an American idea though, it was occurring all around the world, and it still happens today in many countries. As time passes we will progress in some areas and develop new limitations.
I don’t really see why we should worry about past events that are no longer problems impacting those who live today (unless they think that somehow the events that happened to their descendants impact them today in a serious way, which I cannot see).
