History vs. Truth

MTE5NTU2MzE2MjA2MDQwNTg3

I would actually like to write more on this topic at a later date. But for now, enjoy this word:

“One is astonished in the study of history at the recurrence of the idea that evil must be forgotten, distorted, skimmed over. We must forget that George Washington was a slave owner….and simply remember the things we regard as credible and inspiring. The difficulty, of course, with this philosophy is that history loses its value as an incentive and example; it paints perfect men and noble nations, but it does not tell the truth.” – W.E.B. Dubois
