Rushdoony on Revisionism and History

"Before any Big Brother arrives, the new religion and new history must prepare the way for him and envision him as the historical necessity…As a result, since World War II, there has been an extensive suppression of and hostility to historical studies which seek to give an accurate report and analysis of the causes and conduct of that conflict…In short, bear false witness, by silence, consent, or writing, especially if it is intellectually respectable to do so, for to do so justice to an enemy, stranger, or anyone other than yourself 'must simply result in embarrassing your friends.'"

--R. J. Rushdoony, "The Nature of the American System"
