[286] Revisionist History

There is nothing new about the current attempts to denigrate figures of the past by tearing down statues and renaming institutions.  It is also intellectually bankrupt.  This movement is nothing more than an attempt at what is called revisionist history—an attempt at judging figures of the past by contemporary cultural standards.

For example, in his time, Lincoln was the ultimate progressive—willing to go to war in part to end slavery.  By today’s standards, he was not sufficiently enlightened.

Again, this is nothing new.  It was practiced openly as far back as the 1960’s.  It is also intellectual bankrupt.  No sane person should expect people of decades and even centuries ago to adopt attitudes and engage in conduct deemed politically correct by current standards. DC
