"Better off?" hmm, that is questionable, and if we were liberated, they should have loosened their iron grip. Im not an American hater (see I write in English thanks to them), but the idea of putting it into history that we were "liberated" is inaccurate at best. We can all understand that that was a time when the air still smelled of Feudalism and Colonialism. The US of A back then was just like all the other conquering countries. But a liberator? Maybe in WW2.
