Once you have been subdued, you'll then teach your children the same version of history written by the conqueror, and your children would do the same, your children's children would do the same, and their children would do the same, and so on. As you can imagine, your nation is subdued forever and would never be able to rise above the conqueror!.
Dr. John Henrik Clarke, puts it in another way when he said ''to control a people, you must first control what they think about themselves and how they regard their history and culture. And when your conqueror makes you ashamed of your culture and your history, he needs no prison walls and no chains to hold you''.
