How would the world change if history was never taught?

    • Thread Starter

    From the "Does history matter?" thread, it's clear that you all think history is important, and history repeating itself is something a few of you brought up... to that end, how do you think the world would change without any record of history, nor it being taught?

    If all records of the world's history were somehow purged, and we stopped teaching by word of mouth too, do you think the world would be doomed to repeat mistakes we've made in the past? Perhaps there would be more wars, or prejudice in the world?

    Tell us what you think here! :holmes:

    Germany would not have allowed 1,000,000 migrants in last year..... Thats for sure.
