While those who remember the lessons are not lost


I'm genuinely wondering about the unintended consequences when, for example, people take down statues of historical figures who remind them of uncomfortable parts of their history. Removing those symbols doesn't erase the history, and I think trying to distance oneself from it is a mistake.

If it bothers them this much, then they should be telling themselves the statues aren't there to celebrate the individuals, they're there as a reminder of where they came from (warts and all). Even if they find what took place in those times objectionable.

I guess that's people's way of "deplatforming" someone who died a long time ago.
