My whole life I've heard about how the Soviets rewrote the history books to make it appear the current group is/was always the best. I've heard about how people because (pardon me George Orwell) unpeople and one day were written out of history never to be seen or acknowledged again. I've always heard how horrible that is, how a free press and such is a better way to do things and how it could never happen here. Then suddenly the same people who talk about how the US should never emulate the Soviet Union start pushing for deleting people from record books, erasing all mention of entire places from all books, repainting long established murals to eliminate a person or people that have fallen out of favor. This is truly a strange time to be living.
