I'll tell you exactly what can be learned, if you go back a couple of
hundred years you may find reasons why the current behavior of certain
people is stupid barbaric and parochial, however that doesn't make such
behavior one bit less stupid barbaric and parochial. But some things
haven't been learned, neither I or you or even the protestors understands
how learning less about the universe will make up for injustices that were
committed centuries ago.
