There may be scholars in 500-year time when a whole new understanding of early South African democracy is sought or even things that we can’t even imagine right now. We would want the future generations to have access to this data. Unless we actively preserve and hold onto these things (history) and use our skills and talents to preserve them, otherwise we are betraying the future generation who might want to learn from that period. Because a lot of data cannot be recreated or captured in 20 years time. It will be gone forever.
