What actually happened historically is a lot more mundane than what you get in the history books. The vast majority of the time nothing of any interest has ever happened.


It is true that history is written by the ‘winners’. But it is also written by the ‘losers’. It is just that no one is interested in what the ‘losers’ have to say – aside from the ‘losers’. Even though what the ‘losers’ have to say may come closer to the reality of what actually happened.


Never mind a story that tells of a distant past, why not write a glorious story of the future to come?

Every story ever told is make-believe. What would you choose to believe?

Death? Or Glory?
