Something to think about and maybe to get us to reconsider our own history:

What has Old Joe Hunt answered when I knowingly claimed that the history was the lies of the victors? ‘As long as you remember that it is also the self-delusions of the defeated.’  Do we remember that enough when it comes to our private lives?

What do you think? Is history made of the lies we tell us (knowingly or not)? Or our self-delusions? Or what is lost never to be remembered?
