why are we so freaking intent on preserving history at all costs? we always seem to hold the most abstract notions in higher regard than actual people. here's warsaw allowing a nationalist/anti-semetic/racist/homophobic/fascist demonstration because it celebrates poland's independence and is organized by the offspring of the of a fascist organization from the 30s. say what?! https://www.wsj.com/articles/polish-nationalist-youth-march-draws-thousands-in-capital-1510429006

@wxl Weeeeelllll, IMO the Polish government is not “allowing it to preserve history” any more than the US gov is protecting confederate monuments, and allowing our own nazis/klan to march freely, to preserve history. In both cases the established powers are deeply racist and they will say *anything* to make their position seem reasonable or moral.
