“History is written by the victors.”
But the learning of history is something that must be more than reading the records of the victors. We don’t have the luxury of not understanding the past.
They say that to not learn history is to be doomed to repeat it. So it’s our duty to delve into history. Not just take the surface reporting, but to learn about an issue, and to form our own opinions.
And it is t geographically limited. Any person, any place, should take an interest in the steps taken to get where we are today. We stand on shoulders, so every now and again, we should look to see whose shoulders we’re standing on.
