    Here's a very good article on how we have forgotten history.

    "The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long that nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster."

    A subtitle for this thread could be: "The Palestinian Struggle."

    I told another poster a while back that history is probably the most important course kids should be taught....even above math, and I really believe that

    History is being forgotten today. The fucking history channel isn’t even about history anymore
