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.

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.

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).

what would you write about peace?
"so the king sat down and had a nice conversation with his men" "and then he went to his wife and they had some hawt sex and made babies" "the queen then sang a beautiful song and wrote a book" "they had a baby" "everyone lived happy" "did i mention everyone being happy?" "Yeah .... nothing happens really...." "Oh yeah the boy grew older and then he went outside to play, and then went back to bed" "and they lived happily ever after" "For real...."

“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”

The technological developments from war have been astounding. Sure millions of people died. But until you can change the nature of 7 billion people I don't think war will end any time soon.
