It's not an abnormality, he participated because he thought it was worth it (and, really, he was entirely right, judging by how close he got to achieving his goal relative to the other two routes, where the Grail gets dismantled 10 years later). And, honestly, the difference between HF and the other routes is precisely that Zouken participated in HF. Without that HF would not have happened, and once he gets involved something like HF is inevitable.

The Einzberns fund repairing the damage caused in the wars, but with the way mind altering magic works, it couldn't feasibly work after the 4th war's events. There would be too many things to remind people of the gaps in their memories.
Except that it's canon that they did cover it up. It might be absurd, but it is still canon. I know you think highly of yourself and don't think you can possibly be wrong about anything, but your opinion still doesn't supercede Nasu's.

The fact that something happened wasn't. The exact nature of that something clearly was. The same applies to the school incident. People know that something happened, but not that it was magical in nature.
Come to, a new Type-Moon forum.
