I think because there really isn't any real history. It has been destroyed.
Faber talks about how he's a "coward" and stays safe in his home all day doing nothing (and being safe), while other men out in the world die. No matter how many men are bringing out "the plan" with travelling electronic ear devices, they'll eventually be found and killed while Faber would stay safe at home (like a Queen Bee).
