Others say history is a child‘s box of letters with, which we can spell any word that’s pleases us.

Or they read the present back to the past, instead of seeing the PAST for what it really Was Reality is Pushed into a Web of Lies from which there’s no way of escape, “making of history a distillation of rumors.” ( Thomas Carlyle)
