comment Did Ivan Marchenko actually exist?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about question begging denialism.

comment How does governance evolve?
The edited question has a pastiche of Marx's actual, and problematic, accounts of long duration history but is reopenable.

comment Do revisionist historiographies come closer to “unbiased truth”?
I've used Ranke's "as it was" as a proxy for the general public's understanding of "unbiased." Part of any answer would need to note the problem with "bias" as a concept in the general public. I maintained the concept "unbiased" since it seemed a strong opinion from the original questioner. If the OP is happy for me to further modify this to a question as a historian would write it, I will.
