[root@maldives ~]$ rm -rf history

If you look at a maldives in a point of view of unix box and you are the root. For years this has been the story; as long as you are root and just before you logout; on every major event that you don’t like issue the command : rm -rf history. Some admins have also edited these files. vi would have been the choice of tool.

Looking back in time; from the time of “Rahnamaari” to the “Madhumeeskolu” days. It’s the same old story. For all these sessions and events; logs has been altered or deleted. Even events of last week. Ever wonder why we don’t have a proper written history of our country? or some pages are missing from the books? I guess we know the answers, and also know the gang of people to blame! This has been the case for thousands of years. I remember the event of 1988 November 3rd; A lot of us will remember this day... but ask around or refer to the official writings? daaa? what the? It will sound more like a “Rambo” series movie.

So the good news is “history can be rewritten”?

There are admins who never check the "history" or previous logs rather. As it is history which tells you what is wrong and what needs to be done in future!

Or could it be that the admin is too lazy to check the history?
Could it be that the admin, being the root having "super access" doesnt want to check the history just because he/she wants to be the root? Root is power. Power tends to control the whole system?

You got that right.

Root is God on the system.

And God is, after all, the all-knowing, all-wise.

I maybe an atheist out here, but as soon as login to my terminal, it is root and thy Lord art in the Heavans whom I worship.

There is no God, save Root
