Well, for once, Foi should be relieved that there's no more MSN and Yahoo news here for now lol! Well, actually, last Sunday I was talking abt history with a fellow churchmate and he said that history is written by the winners and there's no such thing as a clear cut truth in it. What one can do at the very best is to look at this area from different aspects. For example, ppl are all calling Hitler evil and what not, but was he really like that? Could there be a reason behind what he had done? In a certain extent, I do agree with my friend. No matter what you want to say, history will always be written by the victors. Just think of it this way: History dictates that Japan invaded Asia for their selfish ambitions. But what if the Japs actually became victorious in WWII? Would what is written be changed? Everyone were saying how evil the Japs are, but if they are actually ruling over Asia in this current age, will history say so? I for one, will think all the Japs will say in the textbook in this scenario is very simple: They invaded Asia to liberate it from the Western countries and deny the Nanking Massacre, which to me is BS. In case you guys dunno, that shit is actually written in Japanese textbooks. But still, I do believe that while history is written by victors, there are certain truths in history that couldn't be denied. And that is why there were events in history that were universally recognized as true except to retarded ppl who said otherwise. That is why I've said just now that the Jap's reasons and denial for WW2 is BS. Scary thing is that there could be stupid ppl who buy that crap for all we know. Which comes to another issue: Are human beings stupid in a general sense where history is concerned? I think that if history textbooks say something, chances are ppl will accept it no matter how absurd the issue may sound. I think it has something to do with nationalism and the blind trust contained within it. True there are ppl who see things another way, but how many such ppl are there? This is one issue you guys might want to think over. For now, my views on this issue is done. Now it's you guys' turn.
