History repeats itself even though man often changes.
There might be new things under the sun but it’s not a theory but observation that history does in fact repeat itself (Detrick). History has repeated itself since people could write history down and It will continue to repeat itself. This is an inevitable truth that we cannot change. The only way we could possibly prevent ourselves from making the mistakes of the past is for everyone to learn about them. Very few people know, value, or even pay attention to the past. It had been brought up many times in history class that the average person doesn’t know significant or major events that have occurred throughout history. That being said, History repeats itself even though man often changes.
History Repeats itself example 1
The oldest example of history repeating itself goes backs to the Israelites and Persians with slaves. This was a recurring topic throughout American history and today there are still slaves. Big companies are the owners and people who work overseas, in sweatshop, and in poor conditions are the slaves.
History Repeats itself example 2
The Spanish war set the template for a “good or popular war” but, today we still invalidate those principles. The Spanish war should’ve taught us keep the war short with few casualties and obtainable objectives. Today we seem to do the opposite and the consequences always show like with the Vietnam War Protests or even more recently the Afghan/Iraq War.
History Repeats itself & No one is an exception
Not one type of culture or people despite education is excluded from this argument. Napoleon Marched into Russia and is beat by the cold. Hitler who was superior in technology and war for his time made the same exact mistake. Both of these people conquered most of Europe and both of them made the same fatal mistake.
History Repeats itself but we can benefit from it
In the future we’ll have another economic downturn like the Great Depressors and The Housing Bubble. In the future we’ll see small countries be beat by bigger countries. In the future I can assure you we’ll see history relived and there are signs now that point to it, If we know what we’re looking at. What happened before the Great Depression and the Housing Bubble? What happened after a nation had conquered Europe? It’s really simple to see if we know.
History Repeats itself but their is hope
Not all hope is lost; we can and always change the future. However to avoid the mistakes of the past doesn’t take one or several people to know the truth it takes everyone or a large majority. The Great Depression devastated everyone in the United States an event that can’t be ignored and is remembered by most people. Since the Great Depression we have not seen unemployment rates anywhere near 20%. This change only occurred because a collective amount of people realized the damage and someone in power took action. This change would’ve never occurred if it had affected a small area like Delaware.
Changing the future doesn’t come down to someone knowing the past. Someone will always know and most likely document the past. It takes a group effort to stop the forever recurring waves of history. At least if some of the right people know than we can slow down the harsh and inevitable waves of history. Maybe the importance of history is not to learn from past mistakes or failures but to expect what’s coming next.
