steamroller wrote:Napoleon once said, "History is a set of lies agreed upon." Tolstoy once said, "History would be a wonderful thing, if it were only true." The worst examples are where war is involved. One truism I heard about it says, "In war, truth is the first casualty." For the winning side, it remains a casualty. Which brings up another truism. "History is written by the victors."


Never mind history. Today is written by the victors, judging by the inability of the orange simian in the White House to discern facts from the narcissistic fantasies that occupy his cranium. Good luck with that "past" thing.
