It crossed my mind a few days ago that a shocking number of people don't seem to know or care much about the history of their own country, let alone the world. This, to me, is lunacy -- I love history, and I can't get enough of it.
To me, history is the story of where humanity has been, how we got where we are, and even where we're going. It is vitally important to understand history to understand politics, philosophy, law, or really any other element of our society.
So I put the question to you, Debate Politics. Are you history buffs? Do you go out of your way to learn more about history? Do you think it's as vital to understanding politics as I do?
Or am I living in the past?
