WWII: The great war, the deadly war, and the unnecessary war
WWII, a large war spanning from September 9th, 1939, all the way to 1945 in August and September. Over 55,000,000 people died in this war, civilian and military. 55 million people, died just because people refused to learn from history. You would think that the around 11,000,000 military casualties in WWI would have been enough, but no. People refuse to learn from history. People refuse to even know history. Some people think history is boring and fairly unusable. If history is boring, then the games all kids are playing are boring as well. “Call of Duty,” a very successful series, is all based on past and current warfare. “Medal of Honor,” is the same story. All these games that people play constantly, myself included, are all based on wars that we could of avoided, or at least lowered the casualties. In WWI, people overlooked the assassination of the leader of Austria-Hungary, yet when the heir the the throne demanded Serbia to agree to their terms, Serbia went to Russia, and Germany went to Austria-Hungary, and then France went with Russia. Germany then launched an attack and invaded Belgium, who was neutral, bringing Britain into the war. When the are ending around 1917, people thought that there would never be another war. Winston Churchill warned Britain and the U.S. and everyone else that Germany was going to attack. We don't look at our past, but we don't try to learn from it. Therefore, everything is made meaningless. It is like going to college but no learning anything. We need to work on that, or there won't be a “we”. Part of the reason, is that we try to ignore this plea. Well, lets think this over, k? We don't want a dark future, so we ignore it, and that creates a dark future, maybe a darker future.
