It seems blind arrogance and hubris toward “skulking peasants” is an eternal constant, whether it was the British government towards the American colonists in 1775; the British government towards the Indian sepoys in 1857; the American government towards the indigenous Indian peoples of North America from 1775 to 1890; the American government towards the Filipinos in 1899; the American government’s Banana Wars against Latino peasants; the British Amritsar Massacre of Indians in 1919; the American government towards the Vietnamese from 1955 to 1975; the American government towards the Afghans in 2001; the American government towards the Iraqis in 2003; or the American government towards the American people in 2013.
