Quote from: Shiranu on September 03, 2023, 06:37:07 PMWatching this video reminded me of this thread.The closing statements, around 15:00ish, talks about how misrepresentations of history like this help contribute to a faulty view of the past; it contributes to a false world view where colonialism didn't happen, everything was great and just forget about it.Who does this ultimately help when people do forget about it - as time passes and historical literacy declines, as reality is written out of history books for political agendas (of either side,) do the oppressed or the oppressors benefit?
QuoteThe Repubs seem to think they benefit.
