As history was my favorite class at high school, it became very useful for me nowadays. Knowing history offers a person huge chances of understanding many things in his daily life, not only things about himself, but understanding processes that happen all around the world.
Many events that happen today, that we see on television, are something very familiar. For example some political reforms, or changes in some government, this is what was happening for a long time. HISTORY IN THE NEWS is everywhere. Just try to pay attention and see how a company is developing for example, being a small one from the beginning it starts to use some principles and methods which other companies used in past. This is how history helps a small company to develop. Or when you are watching “the primaries” in the news, you see how democrats fight the republicans. And you understand that this is a historical battle which lasts for a long period of time. This is HISTORY IN THE NEWS. As more you find out about such stuff, as the more intelligent you become. Knowing history is really helpful. All the political and economical processes are basing on some theoretical data which you can learn only from history.
