Honestly, the aliens that visit in 10,000 years and find this era of history are either going to go crazy or start a new religion.  Probably both.

You know what one of Trump's problems is?  His lies only work on his base and his base is shrinking.

He should be ignored and put on trial. If he wants to say something, he can do so under oath. Traitor.

Yeah, the better writing systems get the less permanent they are. The writing system mankind used longest was cuneiform, which was used for 3,000 years. Cuneiform lasts more or less forever. That's why we have more documents from the Hittites than from the Ancient Greeks. We also have the original letter sent by Xerxes to the kings of Sparta.

The religions of the book came in when paper came in. Writing was much more convenient, but harder to preserve, so clinging to old books became a religion. One result is our bizarre misunderstanding of "biblical times" based on highly selective preservation of certain texts. People tend to think of the world beginning 2,000 years ago. Dead tree media lasted about 2,500 years, but it's on its way out.

Now everything electronic, fakeable and ephemeral. History gets reinvented every six months, reality is what comes out of the battle of the bots, mankind has the memory of a mayfly.

They will watch clips from the news. And then they will watch clips of the HBO show Veep. And then they will write about how Selena Meyers was the first woman president because those clips will be more believable.

Meanwhile, the fraudulent votes were never counted, and the incumbent (who was responsible for the plan) was almost immediately caught.

Honestly, at this point my guess is that they're going to have to ask "what was a President?" before the lesson can proceed any further, and what they'll get is a five-minute speech about the collapse of the illusion of democracy under its own inherent corruption followed by a bit about how the current system where only military veterans are allowed to vote.

See, we're in the backstory of a Robert Heinlein novel at this point, and unfortunately for us it ain't Time Enough For Love.

Even back in the early 1990s people were saying "digital data lasts forever or 18 months, whichever comes first." We are in the golden age of information loss. More information than ever is being generated and recorded, drowning out the important stuff in a tsunami of mediocrity and irrelevance. Any given piece of information generated today and not deliberately archived by competent archivists will last only until the next major change in storage technology unless it is popular enough for someone to make a buck off moving it to the new medium, and that cycle will iterate over and over as new technologies become available. Miss one upgrade cycle and the information is hard to get at. Miss two and it requires expensive specialists to recover.

Few people understand my obsession with printed copies of books. And right now, anything I buy that's political at all I'm trying to get first printings of.

Amazon can change a book on your Kindle and you'd never know it. And you'd have to think really hard to know for sure if you read it correctly the first time, or if you were just misremembering. And for someone who was driven crazy by gaslighting family, I don't need my electronics pulling the same stunts.

So nope. Give me that hardcopy and take up space on my shelf. But at least I have the confidence that the book was written that way the first time I read it.

Throughout my life, people have been quoting that book whenever a political scandal amounted to a mosquito farting in a hurricane. It was the go-to and it was very tiresome. It seemed a citation dumb people used to sound smart.

What do photos have to do with anything? The people writing in cuneiform weren't leaving photographs for their children, either.
