Who benefits with the premature death of the Midhurst Historical Society?

Are there many benefits for an economic and political alliance in having everyone forget the past?

Pioneer history

Pioneer History of Midhurst, The Midhurst Historical Society, 1975.

The past provides context to judge the recklessness of the proposed Midhurst Secondary Plan.

A History

A History of Vespra Township, The Vespra Township Council, Allan Anderson & Betty Tomlinson Anderson, Editors, 1987.

Destroying or burning the books would be raise too much of a stir with the staff. Much better to throw out the original research because “no one cares about history”.

  • Such truly ignorant rubbish…proven false in 99% of the world.

Such hubris. Quotes:

History is a vast early warning system. Norman Cousins 1915 – 1990

History is a cyclic poem written by time upon the memories of man. Percy Bysshe Shelley 1792 – 1822

Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings. Heinrich Heine 1797 – 1856
