shout out to my brain for giving me a dream about a bear in the big blue house RPG where characters have traits like "take damage when being washed"
A big problem with the way history is taught is that we aren't taught the full context of just how awful life was back then. We're (Sweden here) taught the names and lives of an awful lot of kings and how much they murdered people but we never get the perspective of serfs and tradespeople. They don't matter, because workers don't matter to this day.
Make education leftist, make people understand the class struggle that goes on to this day. Teach kids to draw parallels between oppression back then and oppression now.
The spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said to the crowd that had gathered.
"Do you wish to see our leader?" someone called.
"Are you here to conquer us?"
"Will you save us?"
"Then why are you here?"
"You seemed lonely."

Going to a regional/national quaker youth retreat was just:
Being taught communism by day
Laying your head on a hippie's stomach by night
I know for a fact this was true for millennial american Friends. I cannot speak for today's quaker youth, or with full certainty about Gen-X.
