It will soon be 1984…

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.

George Orwell, from “1984”

Airbrushing history does not make the future any better. In fact, there’s a real possibility that doing so will only make it worse.
