@fribbledom It's useless. While you're young you'll never read the diary. When you get old your memory will present you with all the significant past memories - while you cannot even remember your name or what you have eaten at lunch.
I think one of the functions of s diary is to remind you of significant elements of your past which you'd rather not acknowledge, and the ones whose significance you didn't realise at the time.
The other one would be to remind you how far you've come since you did 'that thing'.
I can think of more reasons. You'd be surprised how often _your own_ memory fools you. You may have vivid memories of your best friend being at a certain party with you 10 years ago? Well yeah, until you open up your own diary and read in your own hand-writing that he wasn't even there.
Don't believe me? Read up on that subject. A big amount of your memories are completely artificial and made up by your own brain.
Tolerance is not always a good thing, and has been highly overestimated lately.
Karl Popper, for example, - considered by many as the greatest thinker of the 20th century - states in his master work, The Open Society and It's Enemies, that one cannot be tolerant with the intolerant.
Would you say mist people are too tolerant or too little? And would you think the world would be improved if everyone forgot about their past mistakes?
If you think "more tolerant" has the wrong sound, maybe try "less hypocritical".
I for one would welcome if fewer adults acted as if they'd never been children/adolescent, and that's just the very obvious superficial benefit.
