The graphic at the end is the saddest part of the video.

The Civil War and Vietnam never happened?

The only reason it is so sparse is because of lack of knowledge. Human beings are very warlike creatures.

If that was true countries wouldn't have to put so much time and effort into propaganda and false-flag attacks to convince the public their country should go to war. A simple "Let's have a war!" would be good enough.

The average human just wants to live out his days happily, among family and friends.

Individually, yes, but collectively, we are belligerent.

ABQGOD: The Civil War and Vietnam never happened?


The Civil War was there; it was just really small in comparison to everything happening in Europe and the Middle East. I was surprised to see it be so relatively small, being the war with the largest number of American casualties. Whether the video's representation is accurate or not, I'm not sure.

Fail. So many wars overlooked by this, India was cycling through empires all this time. China wasn't nearly as peaceful as suggested and dynasties rose and fell. The Mayans and Aztecs all had their own conflicts going before we arrived.
 
2012-06-05 02:25:33 PM  
And what is with the scale of the explosions? They have no analog to the number of casualties.

Apparently North America, Africa, South America, and Australia all knew 500 years of peace.

Hasn't there been enough research into these other parts of the worlds to make videos like this not so Eurocentric?

According to this YouTube video, the English language Wikipedia was used as reference and a consolidation of other language Wikis was promsed almost 4 years ago.

Only because there's no written record of native wars.

We obviously need empires again.. Name sounds cool and the clothing changes..
 
2012-06-05 08:46:54 PM  
Very European centric. It perpetuates the misbelief that North America was populated by happy, peace loving natives living in harmony with each other when in reality tribes were almost constantly at war with each other. Ditto for South America. This may be due to the lack of any real written histories for the areas.

He is a PhD, if that's what you're asking.

There's other research done on the subject, even if you don't like him for some reason. Here's an article from Psychology Today i found with another quick google.

It's not a fair representation. We know there were wars in pre-contact Americas and remote parts of Africa and Asia. It's about our concept of wars in terms of our concepts of nations.

When this video of atomic bombs from 1945-1998 gets going, it sounds a bit like a Simon game on acid.

Sorry if history upsets you.

Micanope: We know there were wars in pre-contact Americas and remote parts of Africa and Asia


A good number of those were outside of the 1,000 year timeframe and of those that weren't many weren't remotely close to the same scale as what was going on in Europe and Asia.

so the wars in Asia weren't remotely close to the same scale as what was going on in Asia?

fantastic work sir.

I honestly downloaded that off Steam just last week. It's really good, but I keep trying to be one of the loner tribal nations (i.e. The Picts) and I end up whooped within a few hours. I've been taken over by so many barbarian tribes that I finally empathise with Madonna's vagina.

Well, if we're talking games now in this thread, try out this one.
