  41. Uryen Atienza

    Uryen AtienzaPred 2 dnevi

    @Trovies84 how exactly? This video is just over exaggerated, relatively short, and of course over-simplified history lesson. And what "specialized" school do you go to exactly? And how is this propaganda? It's a over-simplified history lesson, and history doesn't give a shit about your feelings, if a country did shit, it did shit, you can't do nothing about the past.

  42. Trovies84

    Trovies84Pred 2 dnevi

    @Uryen Atienza I’m not wrong. I went to a specialized high school for history and I also got my bachelors in history. Try fooling someone else. This video is propaganda. Good luck with your objective! ❤️🙂 The French didn’t get themselves into debt, the francs were at odds with other countries for centuries including the Saxons. Their debt was caused by a coordinated economic attack on the kingdom. The “bad advice” wasn’t due to the King’s “weakness” - the government and church were infiltrated. Please educate yourself and read a book instead of watching this propaganda. 🤗 Have a good day! Wishing you the best.
