Thread Name: Correct location for historical song?
Subject: RE: Correct location for historical song?
All this said, may I, before we learn about the actual event Fyldeplayer's song is about, observe that many songs use facts of history, whether accurate or not, for unreasonable or at least questionable propaganda. All too often the echo will be "We want revenge!" - or "... reparations!", even for crimes of centuries ago, true or alleged. And expert propagandists will tell their audience who "We" is, whereas in fact everybody has many group identities. Be warned, everybody; preserve the dignity of facts!
