Subject: Those who write...

You know, Shane, it reminds me of the saying "Don't get it right, just get it written"

or "Those who write history are right".

In the world, there is this relativism.

People remember Djingis Khan as a great conqueror, but how many people with what means he rose to power and how he kept it?
People remember the great conqueror Napoleon, but do they remember what he actually did to the conquered countries?

It makes me glad that Hitler didn't win the war, otherwise we'd be singing praiseologies on that man and no word about the Holocaust would be mentioned.
It would be a much more pleasant history for us Germans if Hitler had won the war, but would it be the truth?

The problem is that many people prefer a pleasant lie to an unpleasant truth, that's where all the deception is coming from.

Nearly 200,000 Vietnamese suffer from cancer caused by Agent Orange. And the American Supreme Court says "This is not because of AO, AO is harmless".
Well, that may be what Americans would like to believe. It's easier to believe AO is harmless than to believe that nearly a quarter million innocent children suffer from tumors, victims of a war that was ended before they were born.
But I doubt that the FBI would still sick their hound on someone spraying AO in the Senate's air circulation. But why? It's harmless...
