Is the future of Historic Preservation an act of Antique Preservation or Collective Memory Preservation?

If we look back on what generally have been preserved in most places of the world during last century and what have been ignored, the result will probably be a picturesque scene of the past. But, is it the reality of history that should be preserved and passed on?

After so many decades activity in the preservation field, today many scholars know to preserve a historic place, what is more important and more efficient than the physical character, is the soul and culture of that place? With this in mind, how the future of preserved places will look like and how much of  reality will be told in that time? Are we as preservationists are on the way of preservation and sharing as much memories as possible with our current society at first, and then with future generations?
