: ...the more you read and the more you learn about HUMAN history, the more you realize that because historical figures ARE human, they almost all have failings and bad things that they have done. This comes from the basic fact that we, as humans, are fallible...start with that fact and it makes the reading and the understanding of history a little easier to deal with, even the most unpleasant things.
This is pretty much how I think of history. I accept almost all points of view as a possibility, but dont buy everything I read as the gospel 100% truth. I feel the same way about the Christian Bible.
