looking at the actavist groups I have been involved with. Its interesting to try and record your view of what happened and why it happened. Though as most people will have internalised a different view to yours this can be painful for thoughs who lived through this history. This rises the question of is this a useful thing to do?
“those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it” George Santayana
The is deferentially a problem of circler behaver in media activism and wider issues:
* Problem of liberal views of activist history
* Problem of activist memory hole – our web resources are transient and the backups disappear. The mentality of activists tend to be “we invented this – this is new – we are the first”
* Academics will work with authoritative sources – this is inherently biased
