“(H)istory has itself become a target of desperate attack by those for whom the truth threatens devastating consequences to their visions, their egos, or their projects. A whole new class of intellectuals has arisen to supply a history geared to what people currently wish to believe, rather than to the record of the past.  There are, of course, honest differences in the interpretation of history. But there are also dishonest differences.”

–Thomas Sowell, Race and Culture, 1994
