Possibly; but how is that statement justified, what's the measuretape? As a counterpoint, it's similarly also 'said' that victors write history.
In any case it took almost two thousand years to sort out the elitist-extremist-christian catastrophe (and it's not quite over yet), so it's
understandable if the victims of it didn't have the stoic patience your suggestion implies, but wanted to find quicker answers.
