Isn't strange logic. We go on with our lives in the present. You don't have to forget the past but I sure as hell don't want to dwell on it either.
I guess you are the small group that think we should continue to feel guilty of our misdeeds and pay out in any form of currency, goods, services because of what happened 200 years ago.
You are under a cruel illusion. Most of the so called help we give comes with strings attached. The goal being to get control over the nations -- to better loot them.
