Why is history important?
History is important to us because it is the heritage that
shaped the world we live in today. What we do today will be part of
history in the future.
It is mainly important because it helps us to understand the
world, and how it became what we see today. It can help us to solve
problems that we face today by seeing the solutions that were tried
in the past. We must learn from mistakes that were made before us,
so that we do not repeat them.
So that you can help to aviod repeating its mistakes.
History is important because human behavior tends to follow
relatively predictable patterns over long periods of time. By
studying these past patterns and behaviors we can work to make sure
we do not make the same mistakes and help to make the word a better
place. History is important so that future generations will
understand the sacrifices that were made for them.
History also teaches about problems that we had too.
Studying and understanding history is a great asset for people
to observe how the past affects modern times. The history studied
can be of events a few years ago to events of thousands of years
ago. As an example, anyone who is puzzled by the activities of the
US Federal government, can get a better grasp of current events by
understanding how the US Constitution was created and why it was
created.Understanding history can reveal why Japan, a strong
economic power, is not a strong military power. A study of World
War Two will reveal most of the answers to that question.
