Problem is that the languages mentioned do not have form of writing that could trace back. Missing this aspect will lead to serious analytical and conclusion.

That Sima Qian had his record considered not allowed could be made known even today, showed truth was recorded. Believe that the same approach did happened in other civilization. However, it could not be detected. That makes modern historians to believe that the west had liberty and freedom not subordinate by any form of social norms. Good point raised.

Chinese history acknowledges that great historical records were not allowed to for public consumption. However, the original records surfaced and the truth was revealed. Knowing such incidents mean that Chinese civilization has grown up and ushered itself into new eras. Believe that the west did not and will not have suppressed freedom and liberty of speech and writing. This still could not explain how the west progressed. On this same note, Renaissance was painted incorrectly to correct history of ancient west.

If historical records written by Sima Qian were completely different from his emperor, then all the records should be turned to dust! They should not surface for sight and reading to comprehend. Further, the aspect taht many forms of writing in the west could not be deciphered. Some writings in ancient Egyptian engraved on the walls of pyrimad could not be understood. Please make all effort to decipher and throw light on them to assist comprehension. With so many forms of writing through passage of time, no record will be complete like those kept by one form of writing. Unless this point is understood, the rest is simply guessitmation. There is no common denominator to be the best platform. Hope it is understood!

Civilization needs to have unique form of writing so that history could be recorded and passed down through the ages. Assumptions made on form of writing and language that had no long in use simply would have to rely on analysis. This allows all kinds of assumptions. Decipher is just trying to convince that what was it was. Had those history survived till today with one form of writing, then the great aspect is that information could be traced not using assumptions. This is the great difference. Travel is just looking through lens, at times, those lenses need clarity which may not be present.

No philosopher or thinker has left greater impact than Confucius. Today, great leaders and rulers refer to his edited works for solutions. STRANGE!
