There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person remembers it. Those people had come to trust memory over history. Memory like fire, is radiant and immutable, while history serves only those who seek to control it — those who would douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth.
Beware these men, for they are dangerous themselves and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and of those who seek the truth.
