Which would, of course, effectively whitewash history, something the left both here and abroard seem hell-bent on doing. After all, with no building blocks from history on which to base clear definitions of right and wrong, good versus evil, it would be so much easier for them just to create a new ‘base’ from which to ‘build’ (or, in actuality, regress).
