Following this premise, a newly printed history book would read "George W. Bush served as president from 2001-2009. His term as president was marked
by many achievements of foreign policy. Notably, he assisted in the diplomatic restructuring of the governments of Iraq and Afghanistan."
I think the idea of throwing out large swaths of history is a dangerous notion, and impossible to implement. If you erase portions of history it
ceases to be history. If you ignore the bad parts and only include the good parts it starts to look more like feel-good propaganda.
Now you see, even that so called "newly printed" history book would be lying, they can say G.W. Bush was a president, but he hardly has a say in
anything, actually he never had any power to begin with, teaching history including the "bad" moments is okay, not when it's all twisted to make the
criminals look good.
So yeah, i still stand that history should be removed if it has information in it that doesn't represent the truth. Even in terms of Alexander the
great, his story was twisted also, beginning with the fact that he was called "The great", when in reality he was nothing more then a blood thirsty
criminal, but do they teach that in schools, absolutely not, they tell us that he was a great man who did lots of great things, which is bs. I don't
stand for lying especially when it comes to an academic level.
Even in history when it comes to WW1 and 2, again the whole story is twisted, in reality, criminals started to fight, then that fight ended with
millions dead. Making the people that had nothing to do with holocaust look guilty, like Hitler for example. It's just one technique they use to make
something such as invading a foreign country acceptable.
In reality, 90% of the camps housed war criminals, all those nazi soldiers were Russians that dressed like Germans, and they were the ones to torture
and burn Russians, criminals, a few jews, and anyone that didn't want to fight in the war, do they teach that in history class, no they don't. So is
it okay to teach kids about events that have been twisted and reconstructed to fit an agenda?
