Thanks to the Internet, we are—as much as we allow it to be so—barraged with “historical” facts. But! It has occurred to me—not for the first time—that history is an ever changing account of the facts as someone knows them and tells them. The simple fact is, history is merely which, or whose, story a person chooses to believe.
(I was going to say more about this subject but… historically, it has been shown that people only read the title and first paragraph of an article. The rest, they say, is history, which is said to repeat itself, which—studies say—is quite impossible and generally only confuses the facts.)
