That is by far one of the most imbecile thing I ever heard.

If my friend eats a cupcake and she dies. Then another of my friend eats a cupcake and dies. Then it keeps happening, will I just ignore the fact that it's repeating itself or try to change it by stopping the next one from eating it? I'll obviously try to stop the next friend from eating the cupcake.
People need to learn from their mistakes and a huge part of that is knowing what happened.

Those who do are doomed to frustration watching everyone else repeat it.

if we were never taught history how would we explain the changes in the world. how would we explain war graves? how would anyone undertsnad how the kindpg and queen come around? history is important. I understand that maybe the topics taught are useless but history is good. I mean I took history at GCSE and the subjects we do are interesting. like if I never did history I probably wouldn't of fully understood how medicine changed and suited to our needs. how black people gained more civil rights in america. how Hitler managed to rise to power from being a small unknown person. and how much of an impact wat actually has on Britai. I'm continuing no with history into a level for me history is a great subject!

One has to learn from the past .

Many people want to know how this world became what it is now. How what we have now became what it is. We have more past than present and future.

Why should history be stopped....how will the future generations know about freedom fighters wouldn't our world be so information less because history makes it have alot of things to talk about

There is more past then present. The present emerges from the past. Thus the past directs the present. This besides, our natures are no different than the natures of past humans save for minor elements. When we know the padt we know what kinds of natures manifest which realities. This can helpus avoid certain mistakes.

Knowing the history of war is useful for engaging in war as there are always more things you can do wrong than right .

It's necessary to learn from our mistakes so we do not repeat them. Learning our past, or history, is the only way to teach these lessons to our youth. We could focus on reducing the amount of history while maintaining the core lessons, to allow more time to educate on matters affecting the world today as well.

There were some major f**k ups in history that we need to learn from so we don't repeat them.

We should be taught history because we live in a recent day. It is not good as a youth without having some knowledge of our country’s past. It is useful to identify what our country was like and its progress. It’s true the past is the past but without it we are not right here enjoying life with its modernity.

In a physical sense, you're right: history is in the past. But as to whether we shouldn't be taught it is absurd. You, your society, your culture, your government, your family, your religion, your ethnicity all has a history that combines to become who you are. Humanity stumbles over its own arrogance and selfishness at the cost of millions of lives, and we wouldn't have to if we learned the lessons of history.
