When will Hollywood do a film about the Japanese invasion of Manchuria?

Just saw Avatar.

Went in blissfully unaware of agendas and/or J. Cameron.

I was happy it wasn't a needlessly smut filled movie. I was dissapointed that it made heroes out of the spiritually strong, yet primitive natives, and demons of what were essentially "westerners" - too bad that spirituality focused on "Mother Earth". If it were even indirectly focused on God, who gave us our universe, it would have been good. Regardless, my 13 year old said it was too long.

Growing up in South America I know that the opposite is true.

The native indians, killed each other, sacrificed humans including babies, and yes, worshiped Pacha Mama (Mother Earth), but they did not have Christian values. Although many good people are found among them.

Westerners brought Jesus, advancements, human rights, and education. They did evangelize and did return with gold. So what?

Civilizations that worshipped things other than God are not in a good place. James Cameron wants to portray Mother Earth worshipers as superior. History tells us differently.
