This note (by Mark Plus) ignores vast swathes of history and a fundamental misunderstanding of what most of us consider progress; namely crazy things like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It ignores the development of gunpowder by China, math by the Arabs and science by women like Curie. It is an opinion based on wilful ignorance and an undeserved entitlement.
