Paterno Down the Memory Hole

*** begin quote ***
George Orwell’s prescience warned us of the established order’s use of the “memory hole” to rid people of the knowledge of events that now prove embarrassing to it. The erstwhile Soviet Union made use of such practices — including removing pictures from earlier official photos — while the American establishment has relied on its obedient media and academia to accomplish the same effects. If you want to locate this “memory hole” geographically, you might find it in the same neighborhood as “the tubes,” into which our culture is rapidly descending!
*** end quote ***
That’s why “history” is so important. Because we are DOOMED to repeat it.
The “war to end all wars”, etc etc yada yada wah wah … … …
Patriots have to have LONG memories.
Trust none of the politicians and bureaucrats!
