    In recent decades, Christopher Columbus has been demonized out of ignorance, hatred, and spite.


    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 that 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

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

    There are misconceptions, some of them benevolent, some malignant, some neutral, that, repeated, persist for a very long time in spite of their not being true. One such misconception is that Christopher Columbus set out on his voyage to dispel the popular view of his time that the world was flat. In reality, that idea was an urban legend that originated in the mid-1800s. No one, as far back as the Ancient Greeks, really thought that the earth was flat.

    A protester was on tv Monday who said that Columbus was responsible for the genocide of hundreds of thousands (or tens of thousands) of Native Americans. Well, he probably meant that Columbus' discovery of the Americas eventually led to the genocide of many Native Americans. The latter might well be true, but it is a bit much to put all the blame on Columbus. Meanwhile, I saw a History Channel biography about him a few years ago which stated that some historians believe that Columbus was a Portuguese Jew and not an Italian. Who knows?

    I do not take The History Channel seriously. At all.
