And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." -1984 Slavery and the Confederacy shouldn't be glorified, but these figures need to be remembered. I'm more than happy to move them into museums, but to tear down history in a violent mob? That's a recipe for repeating the past. I'm a history nerd, so I'm biased in that way I guess, but history is one of the greatest tools we have, and seeing it torn down and destroyed because it makes people uncomfortable just seems like the beginning of repeating past mistakes again.
