One of the most unfortunate and widely-accepted ideas about historical thinking is that “history is written by the victors.”. This talking point asserts that the truth of the past is not shaped by reasoned interpretive historical scholarship or a factual understanding of the past, but by the might of political and cultural leaders on the “winning” side of history. The “winners” have the power to shape historical narratives through school textbooks, public iconography, movies, and a range of other mediums. To be sure, these mediums are powerful venues for establishing political ideologies and shaping personal assumptions about the way the world works.
TPM has a history and many of the followers do not know of that. One tool to keep people blinded about the evil in the past is, rewriting history. TPM did this with the press they had at their disposal. It’s time to undo some of those lies that people have come to believe. The Organization tries to discredit anybody who brings out the unsavoury topics of its chequered past. Therefore we thought it expedient to conduct a quiz in memory of the Founding Fathers of TPM.
