The first few lines of the Black Ops trailer:
A lie is a lie
Just because they write it down and call it history doesn't mean it happened
We live in a world where seeing is not believing
Where only a few know what really happened
We live in a world where everything you know.. is wrong.
This is exactly what I've been asking myself for almost a decade - no exaggeration.
Really, what if our history books never actually tell us what really happened? What if it's smokes and mirrors and a bundle of cheap tricks?
This is for the record: History is written by the victor. History is filled with liars. If he lives and we die, his truth becomes written - and ours is lost. Shepherd will be a hero. 'Cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood. He's about to complete the greatest trick a liar ever played on history... But only if he lives, and we die.
- Captain Price.
Ok, Infinity Ward, you can stop reading my mind now.
Maybe it wasn't Hitler who led the Holocaust. Maybe it was your great grandfather. Yes, your great grandfather.
Maybe Napoleon never used to do the hand-in-waistcoat gesture. Maybe he used to put his hand inside his pants, instead.
And maybe Charles Darwin wasn't even a naturalist. Maybe he was a pimp, usually found cruising the strip for some hoes.
We'll never know.
