The first step in liquidating a people … is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster.
--Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting
Note: Kundera was writing about the Communist takeover of his country, Czechoslovakia. However, the principle describes what is happening to America today, and particularly to the American South.
