Karl Marx said: “The first battlefield is the re-writing of history.” Christians should work to preserve and teach true history, and to counter false historical revisionism. True history should also be a major part of the education of the young. This is an age when, very rapidly, the truth about the past is being “revised” by Marxists, liberals and others, and unless this wicked revisionism is resisted people will be thoroughly indoctrinated with lies and myths presented as “truth”. Already vast damage has been done, and even many who lived through more recent historical events have been so well indoctrinated, and conditioned to think along the “party” line, that they actually believe the lies and myths they have been fed. Very few people think critically anymore. They do not even know how to do so. They simply swallow whatever they are told by their Red, almost-Red, and religious-Red heroes and masters.
The purpose of these articles is to counter the deliberate re-writing of history with those stubborn things called facts, and that wonderful thing called truth. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20).

Everywhere in South Africa since the Marxist victory the history, culture and achievements of these two great African “white tribes” have been ridiculed, suppressed and destroyed. Prior to 1994 they governed this great country, and for the most part governed it wisely and extremely well; but after the revolution they were made second-class citizens in the land of their birth. Such lies have been disseminated about English and Afrikaans South Africans, and so frequently and thoroughly, that many of them no longer have any real understanding of or appreciation for their history or culture anymore, and indeed many have even become ashamed of it.
