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).
The Most Destructive Riots in South Africa’s History
For just over a week throughout the South African province of KwaZulu Natal (KZN), and also in the province of Gauteng, tens of thousands of blacks went on a violent rampage after a former South African president and a Zulu, Jacob Zuma, was imprisoned. The rioters looted and then burnt to the ground over 200 shopping malls and countless thousands of shops and businesses, caused vast damage to infrastructure, property and equipment, and killed well over 200 people. Major freeways and many other roads were completely cut off, as rioters set trucks and cars alight and stoned vehicles and their occupants. As a result, food and fuel deliveries were brought to a standstill. The electricity and water infrastructures were also sabotaged in many cases. The economy has been devastated, with hundreds of thousands of jobs lost and multiplied billions of Rand up in smoke. Over 50 000 tonnes of sugar cane were burnt to the ground by the arsonists on farms across KZN.
