 In society we have amnesia cultivated. We have an educational system in most of the world today that despises the past. We have replaced in public education history with social science. And as I believe I wrote in The Philosophy of the Christian Curriculum, social science is not history.  It only uses history because the concern of social science is to teach how man can control man, time and history. So social science is, implicitly, socialistic. Its goal is not knowledge, but control and power.
