The Barbarians Who Disregard History

History is not a fairytale; it’s not a love story. It’s the story of the achievements and the failures of our ancestors; of the terrors and cataclysms as well as the genius and grandeur; of the cruelties, persecutions, and wars as well as the achievements in philosophy, science, literature, engineering, art, and politics. History enables us to learn lessons from the past; it tells us who we are, what our proper place is in the universe. Those who despise history and try to obliterate it from public domain are the barbarians whose rise in politics means the end of a civilization.
