Without history you have no past. People, like societies, culture, civilizations grow. This growth can be for good and bad. Each individual, or above entity, can grow good and bad traits, and conditions. You are better off to celebrate successes and learn from mistakes, then to just erase the whole entity. There is no perfect modern person, just as there were no perfect people in the past. Stop the insanity of cancel culture. Learn from past mistakes.
