Our War With Spain For Cuba's Freedom

by Trumbull White

A lot of fake stuff written by a redneck containing lies about Spain and trying to make fun of that country. In case he didin't know, the USA are a country itself and got independence thanks to spanish intervention. American people should be grateful for the country that made a huge sacrifice for our independence. Its incredible to see how this stuff manages to be published. Simply amazed by this guy's ignorance. If you are proud of being american, you should be thankful to Spain, since they helped and since more than half of the actual US were given as a gift of the Spanish Empire to our country.

The Island of Doctor Moreau

by H.G. Wells

The Island of Doctor Moreau portrays the consequences of Science without ethics. In this case it is early twentieth century vivesection.

While the storyline's consequences are purely fictional, the Reader should be reminded that vivesection was a reality of fringe scientific investigation in the period of history contemporary to Wells.

Not unlike the earlier creation of Dr. Frankenstein, Dr. Moreau's experiments fail and his creations ultimately are his doom.

This is a proven theme now due for updating. Perhaps the next version will see Science as unethical genetic experimentation, and Fiction being the monstrous consequences. Perhaps Jurassic Park is already the latter day Isle of Doctor Moreau.
