Perhaps, some elaboration ?I am somewhat uncleared on this one.
Why is it, then, that the impetus to record the past, to preserve a memory of it and its atrocities, is a most moral endeavor? And there is another question your insight suggests: is preserving the past a preserving of the truth of what happened or an exploration (as your blog post leans toward) of its meaning?
To elaborate would remove the challenging pithiness :-)But the past is always being re-interpreted, and it is always worse than we can imagine.
See my reply to Jindra.
