I agree that if you remove history, you are doomed to repeat it.

But there are always exceptions.

Having a statue to a slave trader does nothing to enhance the culture of any society.

And if it weren't for "political correctness", Germany would still have a swastika for a flag.

Slavery still exists it has not disappeared and emblems simply change , whether it was the Eagles of the Roman Legion or the Flags of Regiments or the Swastika , they are merely replaced all the time by new rallying calls

History good or bad is History you cannot change the past , are you going to pull down Churchill statues because he fire bombed Dresden and incenerated 100.000 people will you ask the US to remove their stautes of leadership , will you pull down statues of Truman who bombed Japan , these are part and parcel of emperical history

PS Pull them down and watch the right and the far right wait their time to reinstate everything that is destroyed , you defeat yourself in these actions

I agree.

But there has to be a clear line.

Perhaps instead of tearing them down, move them all to their own museum devoted to assholes of history.

Perhaps this new generation is the first to really start learning about the kind of people they really were.

That's why they're so pissed off.

Either way, no one will ever agree where the line should be.

And no one side gets to determine that line.

Otherwise we'd be tearing down Disneyland.

IOW - I have NO answers.  Only ideas.
