The myth of our convict past
Piers Akerman posits a novel take on our history:
Go back far enough and all of our forebears came from somewhere else because this was perceived to be a better place to be.
I understand some of them even insisted on being shackled to the ships so they wouldn’t accidentally fall out on the way.
I wonder if I can sue my high school history teacher for teaching me a lot of our forebears were sent here as punishment.
