In a recent turn of events that has rocked the academic community
of Mileth Village and its famous college campus, the only one of its
kind in Temuair, a history student has made a public plea to stop
history after receiving falling grades in the subject last week.
"I believe", said the vocal and loquacious student-body
rabble-rouser, "that in this dreadful subject of history, lie
hidden all the great vices of man. To spare our progeny from studying
this unwholesome subject matter in future, I propose putting the kibosh
on making history in general."
"I DESERVED AN A ON THAT PAPER!!!!" he added.
As word has it from the mouths of the chairmen of the History department
at Mileth College, the history student in question began his quest
to stop all history as a result of not receiving his desired grade
on a term paper regarding the role of the peasant in the economic
growth of southern Ardmagh.
"After he saw he'd gotten an extremely low grade, he started
expressing sympathies with future students who would have to go through
the 'torture' of studying history", commented one professor in
a scholarly fashion.
In a speech made in front of the History Building three days agon,
the fiery activist declared: "We must put an end to all human
achievement and progress! We must spare our children from having to
study! We must cease the doing of anything worth placing in a history
After a pause of some length, the activist added: "Oops. I'm
making history..." and quickly scurried from his podium.
But, perhaps we should stop and think ... IF the purpose of the study
of history is to make sure it is not repeated, the stopping of the
forging of history would certainly ensure the same. And, as history
won't be studied, it will be repeated, thus forever creating an infinite
loop of repeating a history of not creating history.
Is it possible to create a truly static civilization? And if so,
how and when is the best time to do so?
We leave these questions to the historians...
