A set of made up stories compiled together to help brainwash
majority of people. The _official_ method of producing such set is _speculation_. (source: Wikipedia). People who are capable to analyze material facts using cause-and-effect reasoning are kept away from compiling
and presenting such sets. They are either lured
into "exact" sciences such as physics, math, etc or made outcasts by the school system.
Nevertheless, history as a discipline seems like important for keeping the society to look civilized. At least on the surface. At least, in theory.
- According to history, Lincoln is credited with 1865 emancipation as the event exclusive to the USA and Lincoln's genius. Do you know when Russia emancipated its slaves?
- 1861, but it's not related.
- In 2022, in South Carolina they still teach their own history where Linkoln
is an antagonist
Ex3: - It's well-known that history repeats itself.
- Well, that just means we can create alternative reality
by telling people how we think they should have acted in the past.
(by the way Juneteenth
, the official holiday, is celebrated each year because slaves technically were emancipated in 1863)
