“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” George Orwell, 1984
“History is not there for you to like or dislike. It is there for you to learn from it. And if it offends you, then even better. Because then you are less likely to repeat it. It is not yours to erase. It belongs to all of us.” Lt Colonel Allen West

Please don’t berate me for citing this man, even if he is controversial to be polite.
Even if I don’t share his ideas, i feel that he is right.
Now sending a statue to the museum is not a problem " per se", but sending every statue of every one who was not perfect is, especially when it is done by people who don’t understand and know history.
And the true matter is this requirement of perfection in anyone, from past or present.
The prosecutors will find some one who claims to be more pure and perfect than them. In the past, this quest ended in mass murder.
