Down the Memory Hole

A few years ago I met a young man, who though an American, was seeking to find out about his Scottish ancestry. I knew what he was doing: if you don't know where you come from, you also don't know where you are going. History is important to us, which Orwell understood so well his concept of the Memory Hole has become world famous.

Orwell also wrote, "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past."

This controlling of the past and future is accomplished by trying to denigrate and destroy people's history and creating an alternate, false history.

An example: Dead White Male slave owners. Another example: Obama's claim that Muslims contributed to America's past. And another: Afrocentrism, which is the claim blacks created civilization, hence Al Sharpton's claim that blacks "were teaching mathematics and astrology before them Greek homos ever got around to it."

It's an attempt to destroy self-esteem and install self-hate, to take away power and give it to use who have done nothing but destroy.

This video illustrates just how important history is to us.

"This video illustrates just how important history is to us"

It also illustrates how since 1945 all Western history has been constructed (or reconstructed) by Jews. For example,why does this character think that Goering was particularly evil? Do you think it's because he knows the details of Goering's role in the Night of the Long Knives or the fact that he once had two Luftwaffe EM executed for a trivial AWOL charge?
