To people of common sense, it is obvious that the left is censoring free thought and has been-and now is patently-manipulating history, especially the history of the United States and of Western Civilization, in general. Their actions might, at first, appear to be merely mean-spirited or simply the result of evil, either that evil shared in common with all mankind or the evil in particular to atheists who crave to create a new world freed of Goodness based on God.
There was, on the other hand, sound logic that originally motivated their manipulation of history and malevolent reasoning that today impels their ejection of history.
Here are two pertinent quotations that clearly explain why accurate history is important to us and why they-the enemies of God and people of common sense-absolutely must eliminate all historical alternatives to their utopian nightmare.
The first quotation, in this post, of Alfred North Whitehead. The second quotation (in a following longer post) of Clive Staples Lewis.
“When you are criticizing the philosophy of an epoch, do not chiefly direct your attention to those intellectual positions which its exponents feel it necessary explicitly to defend. There will be some fundamental assumptions which adherents of all the variant systems within the epoch unconsciously presuppose. Such assumptions appear so obvious that people do not know what they are assuming because no other way of putting things has ever occurred to them. With these assumptions a certain limited number of types of philosophic systems are possible, and this group of systems constitutes the philosophy of the epoch.”
