Did you know that history is subjective? It is…it really is. I am not talking “winners write history” shit or “liberal, ivory tower revisionist history”. Instead I am talking about anecdotal shit. Like when you here someone say “we should learn from the past”, because the past (what you mean to say is history by the way) is described to us in a subjective way. Therefore, even anecdotal past/history “lessons” are products of consensus….wait…that might mean that history is inherently political…..so that means the study history is sexy and hip!!!! Oh what’s that….it’s not……maybe next year then….

Now don’t you feel better?
