History Doesnt Repeat Itself Essay Definition

  • It does repeat itself

    As a result of the first world war. Germany was left in serous debt to the rest of the world. This had a huge inflationary impact on the German currency, leaving their country in ruins for something that wasn't entirely their fault. This made the people sour about the whole thing which created an opening for the infamous Adolf Hitler. Who promised that he could restore germanys pride and power. Which lead to an eventual violation of the treaty of Versailles. Which then triggered the second world war. Boom Bam baby two world wars for the price of one because, wait for it... History REPEATS ITSELF

  • Yes history repeats itself

    By simply observing what's happening to us now and in the past history repeats itself. For example, Mayon volcano erupted in 1615 and erupted in 1814 it now called an history of the mayon vocano in albay. By just observing the eruption of the volcanoes it happens again and again.

  • Look at our history to see the proof!

    History does, in fact, repeat itself. Look at all those battles one hears about in war - one side is always outmanned, outgunned, and outgeared in general, but they end up winning! Why? Because they have good leaders. A few examples - tons of battles in the Revolutionary War of the US against Britain - they had better men, better guns, and better supplies, but the US ended up winning because the US had better leaders - Washington and the French. Another example is the battle of cinco de mayo, 1862 - the peasants were basically screwed, but they had General Zaragoza to lead them, so they ended up winning. Yet another example is a few of the battles of the American Civil War. The Union had better trained men, better guns, and better supplies, and more of all of the above. Yet they ended on top because they had all those amazing generals - "Stonewall" Jackson and the like. So yes, history does repeat itself, quite obviously.

  • History undeniably repeats itself.

    No, it will not be word for word, not every part will be the same. History will not literally repeat itself. However the earth will continue to rotate around the sun and people will cause conflicts that are either world wide or between two human beings. History repeating itself is unavoidable. The nature of mankind has always been the same and always will be, the only differences in it are the developed technology, which change the way we display this nature.
    "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein. This quote brings up another good thing. It applies to one trying to fix a problem, advising them to look at it from a different perspective. Applying this to history repeating itself, you can't look at a situation in a way that one has not already looked at before in a similar situation. Surely Einstein did not intend for this sentence to be used this way, but it is true that history does indeed repeat itself.

  • Yes history repeats itself

    Not to get religious but the Bible, Torah, Koran and majority of spiritual holy books have written down stories telling the history of the world. That's why if you read carefully you notice the same story is written /told in many different versions and they all speak the same warnings about what will happen if we continue down the same path. But the misconception is that these predictions are foretelling of things to come but that is not the case. What it is telling us is that the same sets of events that have happened before countless time before that has lead to a breakdown of society and it will happen again unless we as a collective change and go about things in a different way. So maybe the religious people are right that the end of days will come but not by the hand of God or Satan but by our own hands. To us that are used to living in a certain way with easy access to food, medicine, clean water and ability to communicate ,travel and receive information I believe that it will seem like the end of the world if our system is destroyed. Of course this is all speculation on my part ,my opinions based upon reading and research I have done on my own. Educate yourself and you decide.

    Sincerely,

    NoOne is EveryOne

  • Yes,history repeats itself.

    Just simply look around you that every thing in nature at one time get lost its charm or existance but with the passage of time it"ll grow up and gets its place just like the circle of earth around sun complete its circle at one point but from the same point it starts its new circle for continution of its nature.Then we see the geographical changes due to the explosion of lava.During this process some geographical changes happens like the gap between the earth gradually this gap increase its size and finally became a separate part but with the same process earth gets new pieces of land...So from this natural example we may assume that history of course repeats itself

  • History most certainly repeats itself.

    It's all based on power & money. If tomorrow someone offered you a million dollars to commit a crime would you do it? Almost all will answer yes. If you're struggling financially you'll want the money.
    Look at History. Germany was depressed financially during the 1930's.
    It took but one man (Hitler) to have millions of people look the other way while millions were murdered. Same for the killing of Christ.
    While he was nothing more than a pest to the Romans he was a threat to the power of the head Rabbi at the time. It's the 21st Century and nothing has changed. Money gets thrown at programs that never reach the poor. Our children ( and some adults) have relied so much on technology that they cannot do simple math or express themselves correctly. Out of the box thinking? Gone.

  • History Repeats Itself

    History repeats itself because there will always be people that agree with the past and things were better than the way they were. For example, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated, like Abraham Lincoln. There are people that believe they know what is best for the world, just like Hitler did.

  • History repeats itself

    Yes history does repeats it self. No matter how much knowledge or experience we gain we still have people in this world how use this information for evil. The knowledge of history is extremely important so we don't repeat it but unfortunately we do. This world is full of patterns weather we like it or not. I dont feel there is anything we can do to change it.

  • There is an abandoned coal mine beneath the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania, where a fire has been burning for more than fifty years. Sometimes it breaks through the surface and creates an event by setting fire to something before going back to its long slow burn underground. Before the town was abandoned to the fire, the event might have been recorded in local history.

    If you didn’t already know, or if it never occurred to you that a fire could burn underground, you might go for quite a while without knowing it was there. Maybe your whole life (or more, since they say it could burn for another 200 years). And if you made a study of these events, without knowing about the mine, you might come up with a theory—the work of an arsonist, perhaps, looking for revenge or trying to scare people off the land.

    What we take for history is often something like that fire, at least the part that we can see, events popping into view one after another for us to explain in terms of what people say and do. And we are largely oblivious to the rest, even the possibility of what is going on down below.

    When what happens has bad consequences—pain, suffering, death, destruction, loss—we typically look for someone to blame and, if their intentions were good, we file it away in history as a mistake. And if it has happened before, especially more than once, someone invariably reminds us of the philosopher, George Santayana’s famous warning that those who fail to study and learn from history are bound to repeat it.

    Every time I hear those words, I think, how obvious, that we are supposed to learn from our mistakes, and yet it seems almost a matter of routine that we do not.

    One day, for example, I was listening to the car radio when the news came on with the story that since three months of bombing the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria wasn’t having the desired effect, the United States had decided that the thing to do now was to bomb them even more.

    I have lived long enough and read enough history to know that we have been here before, more than once, and with what result.

    During World War II, for example, the Allies carried out a massive bombing campaign over Germany, figuring that unrelenting suffering and terror would beat them into submission. After the war, researchers were surprised to discover that it had just the opposite effect by stiffening the German people’s resolve to hold out as long as possible. The finding was no secret, especially in military and political circles, so there was no need to dig in some dark corner of history to know of it.

    And yet, some thirty years later, the United States figured it could force the Viet Minh and North Vietnamese to give up by bombing the hell out of them, which, yes, made them all the more determined to hang on, which they did long enough to make the Americans give it up and go home.

    And now, it seems, here we go again, and not for the first time since Vietnam. If a little violence doesn’t work, use more, and if that is not enough, give them Shock and Awe. Taken far enough, as a last resort, you would probably have to kill them all, which is what Vietnam-era Defense Secretary Robert McNamara concluded it would have taken for the Americans to win, and which is, in effect, the strategy of nuclear war.

    In the inevitable post-mortem analysis known as history, we are told that mistakes were caused by some unforeseeable combination of miscalculation and bungling, faulty intelligence or a lie; or presidential ambition or fear of appearing weak; or what so-and-so said or failed to say at this meeting or that, or the weight of public opinion, or what the admirals and generals thought would be the best combination of weapons and tactics, or what the enemy decided to do that left the government in that peculiar position known as ‘having no choice.’ Or something else entirely, depending on who is writing the history.

    Either way, the people who make these mistakes usually come out as neither stupid nor crazy, because, with few exceptions, they are not. And they do study history, and even those who don’t, have highly-paid advisors who do. So, it doesn’t make much sense that they would follow in the footsteps of those who went before and keep making the same terrible mistakes. Why—with our big brains and all that history to learn from—why can’t we get it right?

    I have come to believe that the answer hinges on a failure to appreciate the difference between doing the right thing and doing the wrong thing right.

    Governments can decide, for example, that a particular application of violence did not produce the desired result because it was done incorrectly, that mistakes were made in the execution, which is what we must study history so as not to repeat. But all of that rests on an underlying cultural belief in violence itself as a legitimate and effective instrument of control, not to mention a measure of manhood and national power.

    This is the fire in the mine that provides the fuel for what happens up above, whatever the details are in how it is done. The cause is not simply a series of ‘mistakes’ that can be isolated and analyzed in time and space, but also the culture and structure of society itself that was there long before particular mistakes were made and continues long after they have been dissected and understood as anything but what is bound to happen when you keep trying to do the wrong thing.

    We keep going from one ‘mistake’ and ‘failure’ to another because we do not connect what happens on the surface with what is underground, because we do not see the present as a continuation of the past, the manifestation of a taken-for-granted worldview that is ‘happening’ all along, whether or not we recognize it in the choices we make and the events of the day that result. Even the observation that ‘this has happened before’ is misleading in the way it fragments and isolates ‘this’ particular happening from another, relegating each to its own unique place in the string of events we call history.

    This is how deep continuing structures make something like recurring wars a path of least resistance, as something normal and predictable no matter how terrible and fruitless they may be. It is what propels the juggernaut of unlimited population and economic growth on a finite planet, and it fuels the capitalist greed and excess that cause panics and crashes in which millions of people lose their jobs and homes. The most recent financial collapse was no mere repetition of history, even though such things have ‘happened’ many times before. It was the predictable and recurring result of how our economic system is organized on its deepest level and continues to operate.

    Beneath the surface of daily events, the next collapse, the next war, the next calamity, is happening right now, shaping what we assume to be reality, what it makes sense to do, gathering force, momentum, and direction, for that moment when it will break through into our awareness and our lives and command our attention, if only for a while.

    History does not repeat. It continues. And no amount of study of its events will protect us from it until we go down into the mine and put out the fire.
