Michael Gove's Plans for the History Curriculum

Discussion in 'History' started by Lotine, Mar 11, 2012.

  1. History teachers should take note of this video:-

    If you're a History teacher, who thinks that the concept of totalitarian world government is just a conspiracy theory, look at the evidence which is outlined particularly in the last part of this video and realise that History is at one of its most interesting and worrying crossroads at this moment in time. We are living through one of the most terrifying periods of world history at this very moment and we have become so complacent that it is obvious we have not learned from the past.

    Hmm - Black Death? Civil War? World Wars & genocide?
    Or, indeed almost any era in the past when infection could lead to a lingering death... No ask me when I'd prefer to live and I think I'd stick with the here & now!
     
  4. That wasn't the main point of the video!! I wouldn't be too complacent about our safety though. Are you aware, for example, that the greatest killer of human beings throughout history has been a nation's own government. The statistics are apparently in the order of 240 million people killed by their own government. I suggest you look up the subject of democide - see video below

    Then watch my video and see if you're still complacent!

    PS You're not a troll, I hope!

    If you're going to quote ranting Americn conspiracy theorists as a reliable source of historical evidence Lotine you might at least quote their YouTube posts accurately. He says that greatest cause of "non-natural" death in the 20th century is people being killed by their own governments, not that that was "the greatest killer of human beings throughout history". Well yes, I'm sure that is true if you choose to define your statistics that way to eliminate death by epidemic diseases and the like from your calculations, but the claim is fairly meaningless when you do that.
