The best time to record an accurate view of history is either as it happens or shortly thereafter. By allowing the node owners to vote on record proposals for the inclusion of current events, the world will have a consensus-based history rather than one colored by the political will of a specific country or media bias.
The Historia node owners control the direction of the network. To provide a truly unbiased historical record, the Historia team has made the conscious decision to not have control over the direction of the network nor content that is approved. The Historia node owners will be able to vote on what direction the network should take.
