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.
