I love to write about issues that concern national and international politics. In addition, I have studied 20th Century history in great detail. I find it important to write about the myriad reasons that started WWI which, inevitably led to WWII. How could I possibly make any money writing about historical contents and current world events?
current world events could be particularly popular. But you would have to lure them in with a picture of some celebrity on the front doing something obscene- especially considering most of Americans are extremely ignorant. So, basically any world news leading to the next war is new to them.
What you just said is the truth! Many Americans are ignorant of history and critical issues that face our country. They watch Fox news or some other news channel that bends and distorts the truth and they take it as gospel rather than searching and studying for truth. I did read some where that many children in Oklahoma do not know who the first president of the US was. That to me is incredible...and scary.
Go to www.cnn.com and on the right hand side click "news pulse" it will amaze you what top news is in America. Its really sad that people dont do investigative research- our media is so corrupt that we should start over.
You are right. There are some incredibly brilliant and informed people in our country from all walks of life. We can't forget who invented the automobile; airplane; nuclear weaponry (which has many negatives); computer technology; etc. The list goes on and on. I will say that I do see something in our society that causes me concern and this does not apply to all Americans. Many people seem to be more interested in consumerism and the self rather than uplifting society as a whole and becoming acting in areas that would make the lives of all Americans better, and the world. Altruism is not alive and thriving here as vigorously as it should. There is also a tendency of some to glamorize and idolize the rich and famous rather than those who work behind the scenes to make life better for other human beings. You are also right that human beings are human beings no matter where they come from. The human animal is complex.
Instead of looking just at the EVENTS that led up to both wars, delve into the people that played a major part. Read their biographies, their memoirs, their private correspondences. Do a psych analysis profiling on them and dig up the stuff that no one ever learns about. (Like how Hitler had a complex over only having 1 testicle; and wrote extensively in his diaries that he sincerely believed Jesus wanted him to kill the Jews in retribution for the Crucifixion)
Figure out the PERSONAL motivation that led to the action that became the event that jump started off the war. I would read that.
You know, I do have that in mind. Hitler was one weird cat in many ways aside from being a psychopathic murderer. Stalin too had some strange habits and did many quirky things. Yes, human nature is fascinating and I would like to delve into those issues because they are interesting to people.
I agree. The American people are paying and will continue to pay for "that war" while the standard of living continues to decline for most Americans. We are in Afghanistan to keep the military industrial complex in business. If you get a chance, read Gore Vidal's "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace." It's a great read and prophetic in a sense.
The germans are paying Israel under WW2 peace treaty. America is in the middle east because import/export is the main function of its economy and of course the US government might still believe world domination is possible LOLOLOL!!!
Okay -- let me say it another way, that might work. The human brain is complex -- human behavior is complex. There are scientists who study animal behavior primarily in an effort to better understand human behavior. Jane Goodall is one such scientist. Humans are animals -- in more ways than one.
The scary part is that these individuals(Hitler and Stalin) were given Carte Blanche to carry out their actions at first. It's still possible as evidenced by the various crackpot regimes around the world today.
First off, no offense taken. Secondly, if you produce good, quality hubs and market them shrewdly, you can make money. I suggest you check out the HubHelp sites on HP; they will be a great tool to setting up your game plan.
What is your take on human ignorance?Two examples:The Seeker escaped from a dark and cold perpetual cave. He goes out to the sunlight then returns to his friends still in chains in this dark cave. He speaks of the Light...
