Humanity is imperfect. Accepting that which we cannot change, but moving forward is what's important to me. Regardless, I disagree with your "fix".
Many people have boldly and bravely put there lives on the line for others. That is what makes this country great, those who may disagree with you,
but would fight for your rights regardless.
i agree that it is imperfect, but continuing the policies of nation building as a means to make money and gain power at the expense of human life is
not "moving forward".
the indians, slavery, civil war, sinking of the lusitania as a pretext to enter WWI, forcing germany to take all the blame for WWI thereby paving the
way for WWII, the panama canal (we trained and funded a group to overthrow the government, killing tens of thousands in the process, because the
government of the sovereign nation didn't want the canal built), arming the middle east, those that died on 9/11, our continued funding of terrorist
groups, and shipping arms to syria (simply because we would benefit if we could install our own dictator in syria).
i've missed a lot. a ton could be said, but these are all events that built our nation by killing and taking.
