I wrote a long paper in 4th grade about something similar. I had noticed a dogfood was advertising that all of their meat used had gone through the USDA testing process. Well duh... that’s how it ended up as dog food. But the ever discerning average consumer thought this was a plus... I didn’t particularly care, pointe Read more

Truth. As convenient as it would be to categorically deny immigration to people involved in truly inhumane roles during WWII, the alternative was to let Russia siphon off all the top scientists, leaving the US behind in the space race, among other areas. That would have meant the US would have been more vulnerable to
