Why Communists Strive to Rename Cities and Streets

The announcement, on Heritage Day, by the ANC president that they planned to rename cities and remove historic monuments from the “colonial” past, raises the question: Why should a government mired in corruption scandals be so concerned to waste time and money changing the names of cities and streets? What possible motive could a government for wanting to promote the Cancel Culture obsession with rewriting history? Do we have any examples in history of other governments striving to change the names of cities and streets and removing monuments? Why are historic monuments important? How should we, as Christians, respond to such agendas? What resources are available to help us understand the battle over history, the importance of monuments and the communist agenda to break down “every tie of blood, soil, nation, race, religion and allegiance?”

“That this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you? ’…and these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever.”

Joshua 4:6-7
