The Only Duty we Have to History is to Rewrite it”

~ Oscar Wilde

What is history? The lie that everyone agrees on.

~ Voltaire

“What We Learn From History is that We Don’t Learn From History”

History is written by the victors.

History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.”

~ Winston Churchill [with certain irony, having been a “victor”]

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of these acts will be written the history of this generation.

“Governments don’t want a population capable of critical thinking, they want obedient workers, people just smart enough to run the machines and just dumb enough to passively accept their situation. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.”

~ George Carlin, greatest politically savvy comedian ever

A Vietnam Veteran’s Lament: ‘What Might Have Been?’

The Vietnam-era veterans, above any other Twentieth-Century or earlier wars, deserve a kind of “make-up” honor, not only for their original service, but for the negative and desultory treatment they were met with after their return home.
