If we could only fix history by chopping off the heads of statues, wouldn’t life be great? Chop off the stone heads of Wilson and the idiotic European leaders. We could stop World War 1 and save the lives of 19 million people. We could stop the racist President Woodrow Wilson from creating segregated government workplaces. Chop off the stone heads of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon to avoid millions of deaths in Vietnam and Cambodia. Chop off Hitler’s stone head and stop the unapparelled violence of World War 2. Chop off the stone heads of Margaret Sanger, Rockefeller, and of course Adolph Hitler, all strong pushers of eugenics. We could chop off the stone heads of Ben Franklin, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington, slave owners all.
Once all the statues were beheaded, we could change the names of thousands of cities and buildings named after people having dubious histories. We could celebrate the elimination of all the horrible events of history once and for all by removing anything written reference in history books to anyone who did anything evil, despicable, or politically incorrect.
Off with their stone heads. However, we must never remove any of the evil living power hungry politicians running our national, state and local governments. Real change requires recognition and prosecution of real-time crimes, not just toppling statues of long-dead historical figures, but real change is impossible because the criminals run the system.
