Will we ever learn the hard lessons from our history? Warmongers and oppression in the last hundred years

Updated on April 22, 2015


First lesson from history never learned.

When we don’t learn from history, really bad things happen.

The lessons of history are still not being learned.

First lesson from history never learned.

It is one of the saddest things in history, that it's lessons are seldom learned.

Our history books tell us that in a city about one hundred and fifty years ago there lived a Hunagulous, who fell in love with a Rhiynocerus. They got married and had six little tadpules. But their youngest tadpule had inherited gosgelicism through the female line, as his mother was a carrier.

Gosgelicism, as you all know, has a very unfortunate effect on the development of the triansera, in all its victims.

The result of this was, that when the young tadpule started at school, all the other tadpules used to laugh at him because of his underdeveloped triansera. He determined that, when he grew up, he was going to go into politics, and take over the state. Then He would make it a law that undeveloped trianseras would be the desired norm. That, he felt, would turn the tables on all the bullies. The result of that youthful determination had a disastrous effect on the history of the last century.

Years passed, and the tadpule with the stunted triansera grew up. There was an enormous war between the states of

Wasculia in alliance with Langrisha, against Lollanda and Grega Grega, As a citizen of Wasculia the young tadpule enrolled in their army. When it came to cannon fodder, there was no problem with having an inadequate triansera.

Our tadpule, whose name incidentally was Ronastus, fought bravely for his country, but was wounded in the final months of that great conflict. Had he been killed the history of this planet would have been very different. But he survived. He was in a hospital when Wasculia and Langrisha surrendered. He felt a great sense of bitterness when this happened, as he considered that militarily the armies were not beaten. A revolution had taken place on the home front, and it was the new government that had capitulated. From then on Ronastus blamed the politicians for "stabbing their country in the back". This accusation became a central platform in the political career that he started to develop for himself in the years following the end of the war.

There was, at that time, a minority within the countries that was neither Runagulus or Rhiynocerus. This minority, although they differed very little in physical appearance from the majority inhabitants, had a different culture, and they practised a religion that was related to, but different from, that of the Hunagululi and the Rhiynoceri. It was in fact the predecessor of that faith. Some of the more bigoted among the Hunagululi and Rhiynoceri even blamed these fellow citizens for the murder of the founder of their religion, although it had all happened almost two thousand years previously. This minority culture was known as The Catstinians.

When Ronastus started to make public speeches, he always included the Catstinians as a target to blame for the woes of his race. Because there had been centuries of hostility against them, they made an easy target.

Ronastus started a political movement called The Nanctis. I’m not one hundred per cent sure what that meant, but I do know that it had a paramilitary wing, and that after his meetings, his followers would often beat up any Catstinians that they met in the streets, and sometimes they would burn Catstinian shops, and places of worship.

Ronastus was put in prison for a while, early in his political career, when he attempted to take over the state prematurely, and his attempt was defeated. It was then that he wrote his infamous book "Wasculia Unbound". It was part autobiography, part rant against "the Catstinian conspiracy", and almost totally unreadable.

When we don't learn from history, really bad things happen.

When he was released from jail The Nanctis went from strength to strength, and eventually they became the largest party in the Wasculian parliament. Ronastus hoodwinked the elderly Adsjark of Wasculia into appointing him Rasdek, or head of the government. Immediately the new Rasdek banned all political movements, except for The Nanctis, and all opposition figures were locked away in concentration camps.

When the Adsjark died later in the year Ronastus assumed headship of the state, with a new title, Sumdug, which meant "Great Leader".

From the first the new Nanctis administration started to develop the military capacity of Wasculia. There had been terms, in the treaty that had ended the Great War that placed a limit on Wasculian rearmament. But Ronastus just ignored that. His fanatic mind convinced him that history would justify his actions. The campaigns against the Catstinians now became the policy of the state, and laws were passed that restricted Catstinian access to education and to jobs. Anyone who protested was either beaten up or thrown into prison.

The governments of Lollanda and Grega Grega looked on in alarm at the activities of the new ruler of their defeated former adversary, but not too much was done to oppose him. In truth, there was a certain level of anti Catstinianism in both of those countries, and there was even a brief flowering of movements similar to The Nanctis in each of them.

One of the first major developments in the foreign policy of Wasculia under Ronastus, was the merging with Langrisha. This was largely welcomed by The Langrishans, as they were of the same ethnicity as The Wasculians A similar takeover of another neighbouring state, where there was a Wasculian minority, went unopposed.

But when Ronastus sent his armies into a third country that had no Wasculian inhabitants Lollanda and Grega Grega had had enough.

I won’t go into the entire history of the war that ensued. As inhabitants of this planet of Wingiscus, you are all more than familiar with what happened in those terrible days.

The war lasted for over six years, and it involved almost the entire planet. Apart from the terrible death toll of over seventy millions, what it will be principally remembered for is Ronastus's attempt to bring a "Final Solution to The Catstinian Problem".

Throughout the conquered territories all the Catstinians were rounded up. Initially they were shot, and their bodies disposed of in mass graves. But that method was considered too inefficient for the mass murder of an entire race. So huge gas chambers were built at some of the concentration camps. In this way The Nanctis were enabled to kill over six million Catstinians, and a lot of other "inferior races" as well.

Eventually, as history tells us, Wasculia was defeated for a second time. Ronastus is said to have killed himself in his "Sumdugbunker" underneath his Sumdugery, although his body has never been found. There are still those who believe that he survived the final cataclysm.

From then.

And from now.

The lessons of history are still not being learned.

There is an epilogue to this history. In the years after the defeat of the evil that was The Nanctis Movement there was a great upwelling of sympathy for The Catstinians. This was partially motivated by pity for the horrors that they had suffered at the hands of Ronastus, and partly by guilt at the prejudice that had been felt throughout Wingusca against that blameless race.

It was decided to form a new state as a homeland for all Catstinians. This was to be set up in a territory that they had last inhabited almost two thousand years before. It was now occupied by Wiscinians, whose ancestors had lived there for many centuries. Nobody really considered the rights of these people. When the new State of Catstinia was set up a huge amount of Wiscinians were displaced, and many of them are still living in squalid refugee camps in neighbouring states. Some Wiscinians still live in Catstinia. But they are treated very much like second class citizens in the land that was formerly theirs.

It is one of the supreme ironies of history that The Catstinians, who of all people should know of the horrors of persecution, are now visiting that persecution on others.

It is arguable, that in Catstinia, the ideals of Ronastus live on.

If some readers, from planets other than Wingiscus, see parallels to our history in the story of their home worlds, it may be because all developed beings share the same negative propensities, and the patterns of history are always doomed to have universal repetition. But let us hope that that will not always be the case.

The truth is in here


Some hidden history revealed

There is a continuing fascination with the Illuminati and their all pervasive influence on world affairs.

There was an organisation called the Illuminati, which was founded in Bavaria in the eighteenth century. This is not the sinister organisation that aims to gain ruler ship over the world.

Only very few people can reveal the true facts about this sinister “society above society”. I am one of those with full knowledge. No doubt you are wondering how deep my insight goes.

To find out read my latest e-book The Zombie, the Cat and Barack Obama. It tells the story of the brilliant pianist, but loathsome zombie, Julian Faversham and his attempted assassination of Barack Obama.

It contains information on the history and power of the Illuminati that is not detailed anywhere else.

There is also some fascinating, but very embarrassing, information about the ancestry of Barack Obama.

Osama bin Laden was not killed in the way we have been told either. Read the true account of his demise here.

There is a royal connection here also, (or at least a Buckingham Palace connection).

      Hi Lady Wordsmith.

      Thanks for reading.

      You may be right there about women being just as fast, or faster than men.

      Dont mind me. I was only trying to wind up Nell.

      This hub is brilliant. Truly. I agree with everything you were saying, and can offer nothing more as you've said it all.

      I'd live in a cave too - I think it would be a very fulfilling and contented existence.

      I don't know about that bit about things going on more slowly if women were in charge though - it's quite the opposite in our house, as I live with an indecisive ditherer, who can't pack a bag properly in a supermarket without it taking a full twenty minutes!

      Hi Nell.

      Your brother is kind of half right, in a horrible sort of way. A lot of our modern technology was developed for warfare, but a large amount, including the computer technology that we are using today, was perfected for peaceful purposes like the space race.

      I agree with you about it being better to live in a cave if it is a peaceful cave.

      The happiest people on the planet are the hunter gatherer societies, like The Bushmen. They only develop problems when outsiders try to force change on them.

      Thanks for reading.

      I'm not so sure about "the women being in charge" idea.

      We might have a more peaceful world, but everything would go on so much more slowly, as any man could testify, who had queued behind one of "the fair sex" in a supermarket or bank.

      Hi, my brother always argues with me about the wars in the past, I say that women should have always been in charge so there wouldn't have been wars, he says they were wrong to fight but we wouldn't have the technology of today if men hadn't fought in wars, because most of what we have today is because most things were made for warfare, I think I would prefer living in a cave and being backward myself, as long as it was peaceful! cheers nell

      Thanks Wesman. I think there is a tendency to persecute, throughout the human race. It just takes the right circumstances to bring it out.

      For centuries The Germans were regarded as one of the most civilised and enlightened races on the planet, yet for twelve years, during the middle of the twentieth century, they went mad.

      If it can happen with them, it can happen with any society.

      It's a chilling thought.

      Exactly. It seems nothing was learned at all. I think of Bobby Kennedy, who'd dedicated himself to the persecution of Jimmy Hoffa. It was said by some that R.F.K. must Hate Hoffa, but this is not true. R.F.K. once said that his first love was Hoffa.

      I apologize if that didn't make sense, I only reported what I'd read.

      Perhaps the persecutors actually love the persecuted so much that the persecuted inadvertently take on the traits of their tormentors.

      It's a strange world we live in.
