Erasing Our History

A homeowner in Lafayette, Georgia, has been ordered by the town’s housing authority to remove a Civil War historical display that he’s had on his lawn for three years, citing anonymous “complaints” ( http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/32157040/north-georgia-man-asked-to-remove-civil-war-display-from-yard ). He says the purpose of the display is to educate townspeople and tourists about Walker County’s role in the war.

But it seems the local authorities don’t want this kind of education.

Liberals make war on the past. They make war on the dead, presumably because the dead can’t defend themselves. But what they’re really after is to do away with history, because they want us plebs to “know” only what they wish us to know, even if it isn’t true. One might even say especially if it isn’t true.

History is the human race’s memory. A person who has lost his memory has amnesia. It is a considerable disadvantage.

We’d better hold on to our history. A whole nation suffering from amnesia is easy pickings for its predatory leaders.

  1. My first reaction was that without the benefit of history, we are destined to make the same mistakes; but wait… we do that anyway. This sort of oppression has been going on for a long time. If a once Christian nation wouldn’t stand up for God, why would that same nation stand up for itself?!

  2. “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold. Its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If you can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

  3. Progressives don’t look backwards, only forwards (hence the name). To look backwards would be a reminder of all the failures their ideas have brought forth. I’m betting those anonymous complaints was one or two cranky people.
