Okay so, I’ve a fascinating hobby, and i also doubt you can find lots of people who have this hobby, although I do are aware of a couple, even some people who have written books on the topic. One thing I really like to do is take famous quotes from “The Harper Book of Quotations” then I like to try to argue against such common sense and wisdom, that is often within these quotes from notable people of past periods. One quote I’ve always liked is;
“Those Who Forget to Study Their History Are Doomed to Repeat It.”
Now then, We have decided and figured that we need to change that quote to see; “people who neglect to study their history CORRECTLY, are doomed to repeat it.” The reason why you ask? Since it appears to me, and also this is yet another piece of common wisdom; it will be the victors who write the history.
In other words whether or not they were wrong or right it is the victorious who rewrite History in their favor. Which is quite simple to analyze your history incorrectly with out the skills you will need because perhaps each of the information in the true and correct history has stopped being with us or continues to be burned by those who were victorious.
Okay, now let’s take all this to a more impressive range. It seems today in school the youngsters don’t really wish to study history, plus they often tell the history teacher; “why would I study all the dates, names, and events of all time, once i can look them on Google anytime I want to?” Yes, unfortunately the student who doesn’t feel as if studying because they are lazy is in fact correct, but yet remember the quote; “people who neglect to study their history are doomed to repeat it.”
Is that this why a great number of the up-and-coming generation are willing to vote for a person with some ridiculous collection of political rhetoric perhaps since they haven’t lived through enough history, or perhaps bothered to learn their very own ancestral history to comprehend the podium pusher’s political rhetoric is simply that, thus they don’t are aware of it whenever they view it? I would submit to you personally that this can be a real problem. Nevertheless, because humans are repeating the folly of their previous history at such a fast and rapid rate, maybe they don’t need to study their history anymore?
Yes, I understand that you disagree using that statement, but let me explain it yet another way. When we teach kids current events, then by the time they grow up everything will likely be there history, so we can prevent them from repeating that history by explaining what is happening within the present period, while they’re have been in school. Then we my relate it towards the correct background of past periods, without perhaps going into all of the detail. Again simply because they look it up on Google or Wikipedia anytime they want.
In fact, even if you’ve never studied your history, or never even really liked the niche, it’s repeating so quickly, and humans are generating exactly the same mistakes again and again at such a rapid rate, which it hardly matters. You rpylxx need to remember a few years hence, to realize when something goes wrong.
At that time you need to act on this information, which brings up a whole other group of issues in age of global social networking, smart mobs, and instant information. However I won’t go into this now because I’m going to ask that you stop and consider most of these points of contention, and find out in the event you agree with what I’ve presented. Please think into it.
