I sympathize with you. I too believe in an objective reality, but the problem
is that there is no such thing as an objective interpretation of that reality.
Have you ever heard of "standpoint epistemology"? Interpretation, or simple
reconstruction, is a matter of PERSPECTIVE. Check out "A People's History of
the United States" by Howard Zinn for a different perspective on U.S. history.
