As I pointed out here.
It’s called history. It’s sort of made up by a lot of facts and some interpretation. But the interpretation has to at least give a passing nod to the facts.
The history tells us where we came from and helps us figure out where we are going.
Lying about the history confuses us about both.
But, then, there are folks who base their way of life, their philosophies, and their politics on lies.
