Good Quote

Having met as a journalist any number of political figures of my time who subsequently became part of our history, and having watched events as they happened, and now see what is recorded as history, I have come to one conclusion: Most of history is indeed an agreed upon lie, either by consensus of an unenlightened people, or through perpetuation by larger ongoing forces in power at the moment. So I think it's always best to doubt the history that is most readily available to you. It's available for a reason. Maybe even discard history altogether in making current decisions, because history truly does not repeat itself much anymore, if it ever did. We live in our own specific and unique moment, but choose to believe there is precedent so as not to feel so adrift, or to delude ourselves that every previous act and action was destined to deliver us unto what we presently are. A fabricated mental construction of continuity as validation. "He who does not learn from history ..." is free from the illusion that what has happened in the past circumscribes what can happen in the future.

I have carefully avoided comment these many years (knowing you'd yank it anyway), but this has to be one of the most ludicrously anti-intellectual statements I have ever read by someone who has merely a superficial concept of history, and that you, a liberal arts grad and self-proclaimed smart girl, would find it admirable really disturbs me. Just saying.
