We must remove all traces of the past,
So we can build a new society.
To make this brave new world forever last,
There must be no reminders left to see;
No hint of what our foes call history.
The narrative they teach must be replaced
With one that matches our philosophy.
Thus will the past be transformed to our taste,
And all once claimed as true despatched to waste.
It will support our ideology,
For all that would conflict will be erased.
Though perfect will our reconstruction be,
It’s true that it will be a pack of lies,
But history tells us this course is wise.

I’m still amazed at how ignorant people are about our history even though they are just one generation younger than I am. It’s frightening to think what kids are learning currently. Moreover, when I think back to my days teaching history and government and how hard I worked to make sure the next generations understood the truth and understood their responsibility to safeguard all the freedom and blessings former generations fought and died for, I get very angry at what’s happening now.
