I find that people interested in history are the most reasonable. So, i've got a question for you: do you think that humans will be able to make a utopia in future, learning from their past mistakes? I think not, because humans always make groups sooner or later, and would need to be brainwashed in order to make an utopia like place. Also, the population would need to drastically decline in order for people to gather around in one group and try not to fight. Not to mention that we are advancing mostly thanks to war research, so war is good, people die, fuck it.

You haven't spent enough time on this board then
Anyway to answer your question, utopia is a pretty broad term, basically everyone has their own little definition of it. And learning from past mistakes just paves the road for new mistakes
Well I think that people interested in history are so much more reasonable because of their capacity for empathy.
History is a science dealing almost exclusively with people, a humanity, it makes sense that people inclinated to that would need a strong sense of empathy.
As for the idea of a utopia, I think if history was marching towards a utopia, we would already be seeing a trend to one. So if you think the present is better than the past, then the future should be better than that.

Or if you're interested in the people themselves, Helen Azar has published several translations of most of the daughter's diaries, or rather the volumes that they didn't burn. Helen Rappaport has a new book called The Romanov Sisters but I'm not wild about some of her interpretations.

It's hard being protestant.
What is the actual justification for this man being celebrated with a holiday? I get wanting to teach Americans a narrative that painted the nation's history in a mostly positive light, but why base the story on an actual piece of shit? Couldn't we have just made up a guy and say he discovered America? Not this murderous psychopath?
