Have you ever wondered why we keep making the same mistakes? Is it because the situations demand similar actions? Is it due to our incompetence? Or is it just a matter of bad luck? The answer may not be as simple as that.

However, one thing is certain: if people learned history, they could behave more wisely and avoid inappropriate behavior or decisions. One can take many lessons by simply reading history. It can be a tool to enhance their journey of life.

The topic of “History” is the last section in the CONNECT pillar. Here, I aim to examine history through the blog’s viewpoint: “Life is all Around”. Or in other words, I want to explore how lessons from history can help us connect with both people and life.

More specifically, I plan to discuss the following matters:

  • Why history matters
  • Why history repeats itself
  • The Evolution of Man: a summary
  • History teaches
  • Human history in a nutshell
  • The burden of arbitrary borders: the 19th century
  • The industrial revolution: what’s Next?
  • Civil wars in history: a pattern
  • Colonialism: a dark part of our history
  • The Origins of Nationalism
  • Homo universalis: a 16th-century inspiration
  • The age of “enlightenment”
  • The Curse of Imperialism

There will be a new post every first Sunday of the month at 10 am UTC.

Feel free to get in touch and don’t forget: Life is all around. And there’s lots of it in history.
