History as math
under the guise of Virginia's new illegitimate attorney general, has decided to go against the will of the people and work for what he calls "history" instead:
"And as attorney general, I'm going to make sure that the [people] presenting the state's legal position on behalf of the people of Virginia are on the right side of history and on the right side of the law."
Can't argue with right side of the law
. Satan makes our laws now, through his black-robed Federal minions; and Satan dba "attorney general" is perfectly aligned with Satan dba "Supreme Court".
But I can argue with right side of history.
What does history mean? Does it have sides?

There are two generally accepted meanings of history.

Sometimes we take history to mean a list of raw facts. Most school history courses consist of a list of raw facts, but even the teachers understand that they're not really teaching history; they're only teaching the net result of chickenshit decisions by chickenshit curriculum committees.
History as list is like math without the equals sign.
History as list doesn't invite you to draw any conclusions. It doesn't require you to solve a problem or connect anything to your own activities. It's just there.

A more complete and proper definition of history treats the discipline as strictly scientific. It's a narrative of the experiments performed by various segments and groups of humanity, along with the results of those experiments.
What happens when you try to invade a country that has a bigger army? What happens when you invade and occupy a country that forcibly resists? What happens when you let business run wild? What happens when you eliminate business entirely? These questions are generally within the purview of "secular" historians, and "secular" historians do a pretty good job of drawing accurate experience-based
conclusions from them.
Other questions are equally historical and equally secular, but "secular" historians serve the elite, and the elite doesn't want these other questions to be considered.
Nevertheless these other experiments have been performed thousands of times by various segments of humanity, and their results have led to conclusions. You can find the conclusions in books we generally call "religious" books. In such books the conclusions are sometimes written in a secular way and sometimes as God's commands, but both forms have the same scientific force. Some of these conclusions are simple public health rules (ie kosher, halal) and some pertain to human social behavior. Among the human behavior conclusions, some commands are absolute [Don't do this!
] and others are more quantitative or proportional [Don't do too much of this!
If you choose to disobey the rules, you must
consider the experimental data that caused these rules to be adopted. You must
understand that you are following a behavior pattern that has repeatedly led to disaster. You must
recognize that you are on the wrong side of experimental data,
which means the wrong side of history.
