Cancel Culture of The 2020's - Airbrushing History

In 1949, George Orwell wrote :

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped (1984)

Three years ago, Thomas Jefferson's statue was removed from New York City Hall. Orwell's ominous description of the ethos of a totalitarian socialist state is inexorably coming to pass.

A few weeks ago, my kid, who is not at a private school, told me that she was being taught that the essential thing to remember about Jefferson was that he owned slaves.

This destructive madness is getting worse day by day.
In general, I am okay with people in various locales taking down statues of confederate generals and leaders as those statues celebrate those who sought to destroy the country. I have much criticism, however, for those who seek to tear down statues of those who helped found the nation as imperfect as their ideas must be.
