I know that this is an over stated argument full of the same reasons repeated over and over, but I still think that it is worth repeating. The main point of history itself is to show what happened in the past so that we may be able to avoid the mistakes that we have made before. These mistakes can be small as diplomatic mistakes or as big as another holocaust. Knowledge of the past can disrupt certain leaders. Which is why when a new reign starts in a country or kingdom if the new leaders do not like the past of the country or the past contradicts their teachings they will normally destroy any history of the country. If history is still studied, then it can be used for many things. Such as recreation of historical areas or proof that an idea can work. The study of history can also teach basic skills such as fact checking or removing opinionated points. While studying history a historian can show what ancient civilizations have done in advancement of the world today. History can also influence science since without knowledge of history we wouldn’t be able to date certain things or give a reason why the objects exist. As science helps history, history helps science the technology that science has brought us history would be practically impossible.

Now some people may argue with this point saying that history doesn’t matter or its the past and it won’t affect us currently, but it does matter and it is effecting you. Think on this because of history we know about previous civilizations and their advancements. Because of history we know where humans came from and how they evolved. Because of history we know how our nations became as they are today and why the politics are the way they are. So before you bash on history since it is in the past or because it’s just a humanity think about what history has saved and proven to the world.
