OK, we’ll bite: why was the American Revolution a mistake, Vox?
When a cause is opposed by the two most vulnerable groups in a society, it's probably a bad idea. https://t.co/H5eUt3tBmS
— Vox (@voxdotcom) July 4, 2018
… I’m reasonably confident a world in which the revolution never happened would be better than the one we live in now, for three main reasons: Slavery would’ve been abolished earlier, American Indians would’ve faced rampant persecution but not the outright ethnic cleansing Andrew Jackson and other American leaders perpetrated, and America would have a parliamentary system of government that makes policymaking easier and lessens the risk of democratic collapse.
In short, America would be a lot more like Canada.
You do know that this very tweet commits one of the oldest logical fallacies known to man, right? Actually, more than one, but let’s keep it simple. https://t.co/sBH8t1tNFd

Besides the obvious fallacy of assuming future historical events remain unaltered even if a seminal moment in human history were to be reversed, this is just plain dumb. Go back to Starbucks and take the rest of the day off.

Clickbait takes the place of history over at Vox, the website for leftists who need a few talking points in a vain effort to be taken seriously. https://t.co/xawsS2Pr4l

Geez, this is total bullshit. I’ll state as a matter of fact, that the innovation that has propelled civilization since the mid 19th Century to present day, would not have happened if what you propose in your pathetic article had happened. Shove this article up your ass.

Revisionist history. Think post colonial (early 20th century)fragmentation and worldwide conflicts. America as a catalyst of material and then military strength would mean we occupy a significantly different world.
