History Does Not Vindicate The Truth

History is made by the historians and not by the people who participate in the political events of any particular period of time. You might feel certain that the political truth is on your side, that your cause is logical and workable, and that though your cause does not enjoy much support today, history will vindicate your political position. But if the historians of the future are against your type of politics, then you won’t find support in the pages of history either—you will be discarded by history just as, in the present, you are being discarded by your contemporaries.

Ah! An irresistible two-in-one offer: Buy Cassandra and get Diogenes for free. ... Or may be, it is the other way around...
