The victor writes the history books, not the loser, the euros read the history that the union vote, aka lies.
Historical research isn't just about reading history books. It's about reading source material.
Nobody would take me seriously as a researcher if all I did was to read secondary literature.

What a genuinely stupid point to make.

European historians don't just copy what "the Yankees" write. They just come to the same conclusions based on the source material.
Blah Blah, you read what was expected of you, you never actually looked for the truth, you looked for what everyone thinks is the truth, most professionals are hacks.
Nobody "expects" me to read anything specific. Research is a pretty independent, autonomous process.

You clearly have no idea how all this works.
"I modeled Starfleet after the Fremen army in Frank Herbert's 'Dune'. Through cultural imperialism it spreads its values all over the galaxy, much like the holy Fremen warriors spread Paul Muad'dib's message.
Spock is a Mentat, the rational element in this chaotic universe."
- Gene Roddenberry 1974
