A big part of the problem with the woke mob of today is their ability to judge history through the lens of today’s standards. We have seen historical figures, celebrities, works of art, statues, etc. fall victim to the cancel culture because they once said or did a bad thing and they should not be allowed to exist…EVER!
On today’s show I wanted to focus on a concept that most people fall victim to when writing, or discussing, about the past (history). Presentism, the historical fallacy or problem area, applies when writing about general history or trying to write about our family. Don’t try to sugar coat (cover-up) the actions of the ancestors you don’t agree with
