The dead

Why should we not speak badly of the dead if they have done terrible wrong?

Has it something to do with protetcting institutions and organisations? Something to do with control and power, as pathetic as it may be?

I always wondered about that one.

I think it may come from the idea that, being dead, they cannot defend themselves.

However, I agree that its application these days is far too wide and I have no problem holding the dead to account.
