“History is the version of the past events that people have decided to agree upon.”
-Napoleon Bonaparte
History is written by the winners. Therefore we have no idea what really happened, and this has always bothered me. I would love to hear the unbiased version of events in history. If we could hear both sides of the story we would better understand why things happened and what actually transpired. Knowing half of our story will only benefit us 50% of the time. We must be doomed to repeat past mistakes because we don’t have the knowledge necessary to fix them. Are we embarrassed by what the losers would say if given the chance to speak?
