A VIABLE, NON-VIOLENT, AND EDUCATIONAL SOLUTION TO THE ‘WAR OVER MONUMENTS’ MOVEMENT


“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” ― George Orwell, 1984

We are headed in Orwell’s direction if we don’t get smart about censoring the past. One of the things the internet has done is make more information available to people. Someone says this about that person, and another person says that based on some additional research. Each side gets a voice.

The pastors wrote the Smithsonian a letter explaining that Sanger was far from a champion for their race because of her strong ties to the eugenics movement.

However, their request to have the bust removed has been denied.
