Saving history...

I've been thinking about the way things are going. I've heard tales, and run into instances myself, where information regarding the Prez vanishes from the Internet. I've gone back and edited things I've posted in blogs or on websites because I made an error. It's easy to change info on the Internet. It's easy to make paper disappear, too, although harder to change the printed word.

I am reading some books on the rise of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, etc. and I see many parallels to what seems to be happening in our country. It's more insidious here, and not so bloody. But the words, the ideas, the undermining of democratic values, the shift from private to dependence on government is all there.

Books were burned, free speech curbed or stopped, printed materials were censored and full of state propaganda.

Hopefully I'm just being wacky, way out there, nuts, but maybe we should consider printing (full page with url, dates, etc.) anything we find that may someday show history as it really happened. Maybe we should be sliding youtube videos and similar onto dvd's for later viewing and safety.

Just a thought.
