I agree with you, except for
>So, you take a compassionate, a tolerant view of history--the one we have developed in the West over the past two hundred years.
I think we in the west have remarkable powers of abstraction, certainly, and perhaps the is a connection between the abstraction and the horrors of the C20, which more or less come down to the French Revolution, colonialism, WWI, WWII, The Russian Revolution and aftermath, Nazi Germmany. These were essentially problems within the west.
