That whoever's in charge at the time gets to tell everyone what happened in the past and has more control over the future. Yes I agree.
True how it revolves around people in absolute power.
I agree, perceptions four history can have a great impact on our future due to the fact that many people allow the past to dictate their future.
I agree entirely
If you let the past define you it can affect your future. I agree with this statement.
I agreed with the quote too.
This is very true
I think the quote means that once someone gains control they don’t lose that control over something. I would say that I agree because people like to have control over at least something.
I think that a very good point that people like to have control.
This is referring to how in the book they rewrite the past by changing all the documents.
This means if you have the power to rewrite history then you can control th people as well
That’s one way to look at it
Many of our beliefs and moral views are based on experiences in the past. So rewriting history also in turn rewrites our moral compass in a way.
I agree. I think we still have some of this today.
I agree with that.
Our present and future were all thanks to powerful leaders in the past such as presidents and other world leaders. But people currently in power also have major influence on how we view or know of the past.
I definitely agree with you.
Prole tend to look back in time when making desicions, so if history is presented a certain way, then they will act accordingly.
Yeahhhh pur history is a big part of our lives.
Sometimes they have history written to their advantage over others.
I agree. It’s scary to think about this as a possibility.
It sounds like the aftermath of a battle or war to me. Whoever won the war in the past is in charge and they control what happens in the future. They also control what is taught about their history. I definitely agree that people in power can control the future of others and also what their history says.
Putting that power in someone else's hands seems stressful.
I agree, many people of power persuade the public’s perception of our history in order to manipulate and control them.
It means if you control history and information then you control people, I don’t because you can’t really control history.
You can't control what really happenned in history but you can control what people think happened, and in the end that's all that really matters.
Good point of view
It implies that many people allow the past to define their future and those in power may have the ability to manipulate the general public into believing things of the past that can affect their future. I agree with this to an extent, if we allow the past to define our future then of course it will, but if we start to live for the future without the restraints of the past then the past won’t dictate our lives anymore.
I agree with this quote, I think it relates the the book where they change the past or future by rewriting it.
If you control the present, you can change written history. If you control the past you can control how people are likely to react to events.
It’s talking about if you have good start you will be able to control your future. And yes I agree with it. If you had good start in any thing you will be on where You wanted to be in life.
I half agree because the present can control the future but it cannot control the past unless it’s rewritten.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
