All that matters

The winners write history textbooks, the others cover plain fields.
There is nothing revealing about it. One could say, a simple fact of life.
And it worked out just fine for millennia. At least for the winners.
But then something went wrong. First, someone discovered that history
had ended, although soon after, history decided to have a go anyway.
Then someone else, amplified by the echo chamber, weaponized failure.
And suddenly, we discovered that no one really pays attention to writers,
because all that matters is the echo.
