History in school was far from being my favorite of the classes. I never really was interested in it much, yet alone getting to know all those facts that happened somewhere at some time to someone important. I see history more of a hobby for someone who likes to spend a lot of time figuring out what happened and how all the things are connected. But other than that, I can’t really see a functional use of learning and knowing history in detail. Regardless, you can’t really avoid it no matter what you do. You have to know at least that bare minimum to pass the classes + you pick up a lot of things though the course of conversations with other people or just listening to them, so that most known facts are also known to you.
But not always the common thinking is the right thinking, as some people twist and turn their knowledge around a bit to make it more appealing for them and others as well. Following video explains 5 things that are commonly misinterpreted.
