The Problem With History

The problem with history is that you have to actually study it to find out how people messed up their lives, countries, and the planet with their stupid decisions so you can avoid repeating their mistakes.

EBD of Anecdotes from a Banana Republic doesn’t think the current Lebanese young people stayed awake for history class. She is concerned that people seem to be traveling down the same road that lead to the civil war in the 1970s and 80s.

There would appear to be some controversy as to whether certain people actually took the courses they were credited as taken. There are conflicting records.
