Two ways to look at this. One is from within the Community and one is
from outside. For the former, we know of the existence of multiple
narratives and this forms part of our organic history. For those
outside and looking in, the source of this narrative and that it is
the only easily discoverable one weight it accordingly.

And this isn't meat to take anything away from Tory's work - which I
think is well researched, well written and fairly presented.
