I was trying to think of a way to teach history other than chronologically, and the only other way I could  come up with was by topic.

The problem is, politically at least, there are only two topics: “How can I acquire more things?” and “How can I re-create these people, in my own image and likeness?”

The answer to the first question is usually “Kill people and take their stuff,” and the answer to the second is usually “You can’t, so kill them.”


I don’t think I want to think about history any more.

It’s too depressing.
