New History is New

The world looks weird. History has always been revised, but rarely have so many been alive who saw it as it was before it was revised. "That ain't right," is a common thought when some new revision is broadcast.

Weird may not mean bad, but it probably isn't good. Learning lessons from the past is hard when the past is revised to demonize or glorify. There may not be any actual history recorded within a lifetime, if this keeps up.
