Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
The action is not new - I suppose it has been done throughout history, even if Joseph Stalin was perhaps the most famous character on such deeds. Everyone knows what I'm talking about: the story of the people methodically erased from the photos, as if they had never existed. As if they had never walked the Earth. As if the past could be changed, forgotten. It was interesting to watch yet another futile attempt at erasing the past. A futile, and obvious failed attempt. Time, as ever, will prove it.
