History in a nutshell

No. History is less than a succession of events and more of an intertwined connection of processes. You don't learn this in school because historians love wars for the fact that they are so easy to study. They start at a clear date, change enough things for a test quiz and have a clear defined end. While processes (like how the price of sugar is related to the french revolution) need to be put in a broader context and that's too much of a headache so they won't ever bother teaching kids that...

implying that history isnt relevant? not to sound cliche but "those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it"

Conflict gives birth to progress. If we didn't have ww2, we still would be like 15 years behind in technology from where we are now.

A old curse goes: May you live in interesting time.   
Because interesting times are always the times with the most danger.

As a student in a history college, I think that studying totalitarian regimes are more interesting than the democratic ones.

On the brightside, soldiers have excellent job stability.

How many total years has the entire planet been at peace?
User avatar #3 to #1 - portucheese (07/03/2013) [-]
Well, concerning to Europe before 1946, the largest period of peace was of only 37 years. With regard to the rest of the world, i think it must be the around the same thing. Hope this helped.

Sorry for the mistakes (i am not na english native speaker).

To be fair, Necessity is the mother of Invention. Besides for the ******* christian dark ages every time there has been war we have taken a huge leap in scientific advancement.
Pic related, this book caused us to be 200 years in the past because of the bloody dark ages.

History in my country is events and times. We exclude tactics, politics and economical situations. Sure I didn't specialize in history at any point but why is history taught if we can't derive understanding from it and learn? In case it is for interest I would find it several times more interesting if I knew what actually happened (and not just the simple war tactics, turning points and what made those turning points occur and why they were relevant. Oh, some king died and a king who handled things differently took his place? wow I know exactly what that resulted in and it is not influenced by other events so I know everything from then until the point he conquered another country.

That depends on how you look at it. It is true if you refuse to put anything in the peace section unless the entire world is at peace. Now if you are willing to put some stuff in the peace section every time a small group of countries are at peace, then you will find that it is much more even. Hope this makes sense.

if you knew history you would know that you are wrong

wars are just more exciting so people focus on them more than peaceful times

What if we're actually like Spore, and we're just at a stage where one country wants world domination but after that we're just one planet, one species, an entire nation on one planet?
