Actually, that's similar to all modern powerful countries. I cannot think of a single major power that does not subscribe to "Violence is always an option."

Canada has had no civil wars. And actually the USA was founded as the result of a civil war, although we call it a "revolution".

We aren't the world leaders in contractions and abbreviations. The British lead us a great deal in that area. For example, all of us yanks in the lab were talking about "edible vaccines". It was a commonwealth type who came up with "Edvax", and we all immediately decided to keep using "edible vaccines" as our terminology. Even the Ozzies in the lab thought that "edvax" was far too English for their taste.

You're insisting far too much on a literal correspondence. Sometimes, a fiction could actually be fictional.

Oboy, you're at least a century too late for that conspiracy theory to get any credence except for people who believe that the X-Files are a documentary.

Twist is a good word to use. I could likewise start with a lack of knowledge about Japanese history and twist it to be the EWF...

If you try to understand it that way, you will understand nothing. I'm an Orthodox Christian, and I can assure you from familiarity with "Byzantine" theologians that there is no special resemblence between Malkionism in any of its forms and the Christianity of the "Byzantines". If it resembles any form of Christianity, it is that of Western Medieval Europe.
