"Leaving Neverland" (HBO) stokes the problem on "unpersoning" people from history for distantly past misdonduct

I don’t think I have time for the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland”, but here is a  first hour from the Documentary Channel , or the HBO-sponsored trailer here for Dan Reed’s four-hour opus.

Now some men speak up about what they allege was going on.  But of course we had heard this at the time of the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray in 2009 for involuntary manslaughter for a cocktail of sleep medicines including propofol.  At the time, there was a lot of talk of inappropriate behavior on Jackson’s part with kids, which led to charges and an acquittal.

But the most interesting commentary comes from Tim Pool “Erasing Michael Jackson, Unpersoning Is Here and Is Getting Worse”.

The video has a cartoonish picture of a Book Burning Mobile (“Fahrenheit 451”, etc).  When a person’s moral reputation has been tarnished by revelations years later, they are to be removed from history. In fact, the radical Left wants to start over with its own pretend history.

Flickr photos of the Neverland ranch in the past are here.
