    DAE hate books that say _________ nation saved civilization?

    They seem to be fairly common. Ive seen ones that argued it was Scotland, Ireland, the Byzantine empire etc. But it just seems so ridiculous that one nation could save "civilization". Am I really suppose to believe that a bunch of destitute Irish monks saved the world from utter ruin? Those...
