You know how easy it would've been to manipulate history before the internet? Heck, it probably wouldn't even be that difficult WITH the internet. People sometimes can't remember what happened in the news a month ago, and don't get me started with events that happened a year or two ago(what were the series of events leading up to the Libya bombing?). With Wikipedia, they could just change something and no one would have any clue.
Only a small percentage of people knew what was really going on at the time before the internet was invented.
Really think about our system? How easy it would be to make up things?
I've argued that with my history teacher in high school many times.
We were talking about Christopher Columbus and what a great adventurer he was. I had to ask, "Why aren't we talking about the genocide of the Natives instead is quest to find spices?" It sounded rediculous to me that we were not talking about the real implications of Columbus' journeys.
I believe the text books should all be rewritten with an objective view.
