• It does repeat itself

    As a result of the first world war. Germany was left in serous debt to the rest of the world. This had a huge inflationary impact on the German currency, leaving their country in ruins for something that wasn't entirely their fault. This made the people sour about the whole thing which created an opening for the infamous Adolf Hitler. Who promised that he could restore germanys pride and power. Which lead to an eventual violation of the treaty of Versailles. Which then triggered the second world war. Boom Bam baby two world wars for the price of one because, wait for it... History REPEATS ITSELF

  • Yes history repeats itself

    By simply observing what's happening to us now and in the past history repeats itself. For example, Mayon volcano erupted in 1615 and erupted in 1814 it now called an history of the mayon vocano in albay. By just observing the eruption of the volcanoes it happens again and again.

  • Look at our history to see the proof!

    History does, in fact, repeat itself. Look at all those battles one hears about in war - one side is always outmanned, outgunned, and outgeared in general, but they end up winning! Why? Because they have good leaders. A few examples - tons of battles in the Revolutionary War of the US against Britain - they had better men, better guns, and better supplies, but the US ended up winning because the US had better leaders - Washington and the French. Another example is the battle of cinco de mayo, 1862 - the peasants were basically screwed, but they had General Zaragoza to lead them, so they ended up winning. Yet another example is a few of the battles of the American Civil War. The Union had better trained men, better guns, and better supplies, and more of all of the above. Yet they ended on top because they had all those amazing generals - "Stonewall" Jackson and the like. So yes, history does repeat itself, quite obviously.

  • History undeniably repeats itself.

    No, it will not be word for word, not every part will be the same. History will not literally repeat itself. However the earth will continue to rotate around the sun and people will cause conflicts that are either world wide or between two human beings. History repeating itself is unavoidable. The nature of mankind has always been the same and always will be, the only differences in it are the developed technology, which change the way we display this nature.
    "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein. This quote brings up another good thing. It applies to one trying to fix a problem, advising them to look at it from a different perspective. Applying this to history repeating itself, you can't look at a situation in a way that one has not already looked at before in a similar situation. Surely Einstein did not intend for this sentence to be used this way, but it is true that history does indeed repeat itself.

  • Yes history repeats itself

    Not to get religious but the Bible, Torah, Koran and majority of spiritual holy books have written down stories telling the history of the world. That's why if you read carefully you notice the same story is written /told in many different versions and they all speak the same warnings about what will happen if we continue down the same path. But the misconception is that these predictions are foretelling of things to come but that is not the case. What it is telling us is that the same sets of events that have happened before countless time before that has lead to a breakdown of society and it will happen again unless we as a collective change and go about things in a different way. So maybe the religious people are right that the end of days will come but not by the hand of God or Satan but by our own hands. To us that are used to living in a certain way with easy access to food, medicine, clean water and ability to communicate ,travel and receive information I believe that it will seem like the end of the world if our system is destroyed. Of course this is all speculation on my part ,my opinions based upon reading and research I have done on my own. Educate yourself and you decide.


    NoOne is EveryOne

  • Yes,history repeats itself.

    Just simply look around you that every thing in nature at one time get lost its charm or existance but with the passage of time it"ll grow up and gets its place just like the circle of earth around sun complete its circle at one point but from the same point it starts its new circle for continution of its nature.Then we see the geographical changes due to the explosion of lava.During this process some geographical changes happens like the gap between the earth gradually this gap increase its size and finally became a separate part but with the same process earth gets new pieces of land...So from this natural example we may assume that history of course repeats itself

  • History most certainly repeats itself.

    It's all based on power & money. If tomorrow someone offered you a million dollars to commit a crime would you do it? Almost all will answer yes. If you're struggling financially you'll want the money.
    Look at History. Germany was depressed financially during the 1930's.
    It took but one man (Hitler) to have millions of people look the other way while millions were murdered. Same for the killing of Christ.
    While he was nothing more than a pest to the Romans he was a threat to the power of the head Rabbi at the time. It's the 21st Century and nothing has changed. Money gets thrown at programs that never reach the poor. Our children ( and some adults) have relied so much on technology that they cannot do simple math or express themselves correctly. Out of the box thinking? Gone.

  • History Repeats Itself

    History repeats itself because there will always be people that agree with the past and things were better than the way they were. For example, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated, like Abraham Lincoln. There are people that believe they know what is best for the world, just like Hitler did.

  • History repeats itself

    Yes history does repeats it self. No matter how much knowledge or experience we gain we still have people in this world how use this information for evil. The knowledge of history is extremely important so we don't repeat it but unfortunately we do. This world is full of patterns weather we like it or not. I dont feel there is anything we can do to change it.

  • More or less

    I believe in the old cliche, the more things change, they really stay the same. And while this doesn't always happen this way, I feel more or less, history does tend to repeat itself one way or the other. It really depends on the particular event; however that could be repeating itself.

  • If it did we could accurately predict the future

    If history repeats itself we should be able to accurately predict the future. Could we have predicted any of the current world events? It is very unlikely and therefore we have to assume that history is not recurring events. Can you predict what will be the world events in one year, 5 years?

  • History doesn't repeat itself exactly...

    "History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme." History doesn't literally repeat, of course, and therefore the assumption that historical events repeat are just gross oversimplifications. Yes, on a very general level, history does repeat itself--we rotate around the sun the same way, our moon orbits us the same way, but unless you are willing to chalk history up mere generalizations, that is basically the extent of the repetition. We learn from our mistakes, we change our ways of thinking based on the past, and we react differently, so there will never be a complete repetition of past events.

  • History does not repeat itself

    Our evolutionary past predisposes us to see the world in terms of cycles and patterns. Through recorded history we see patterns and specific events that look similar to earlier ones. The cliché that history repeats itself is based on the need for humans to understand their world in terms of these patterns and cycles. To view the world otherwise would be cause for great concern, there is comfort in the belief that history repeats itself for it gives us, right or wrong, each a bearing on where we are and where we are going.

  • It does not repeat

    Each day is a new day and the events of the past can not be duplicated exactly so therefore it can not be repeated. There are similar circumstances that have occurred during history such as the first and second world wars yet they have very different reasons behind them and therefore are not repeats just event that have a similar global impact. Nor were the outcomes exactly the same.

  • Nazi zombies are not present no more.

    Similarities, yes. Repetition, no. Considering this was the reason given to me by my history teacher as to why I needed to learn history, I've been looking and waiting for history to repeat itself and it has yet to happen. When I ask why I need to know math or science, I get straight forward answers. They should have just told me that it's to help us learn from our past mistakes. To look for similarities and predict the outcome

  • Not repeating itself because...

  • No, I don't think history repeats itself

    That’s a good question, I don’t think it does. The things that have happened in history have been pretty bad like both or the WW’s and the holocaust, have made us think that it can never happen again. People learn lessons from the first time, cause nobody wants to have to go through slavery, or WW’s, and a massive killing ever again. If history ever repeated itself we work have another WW or we’d be in slavery or always in war. Also the fact that the world is always changing in many ways.

  • Repeats, but not exactly.

    Circumstances change, and maybe somebody has learned a lesson...

    This minimum-word restriction is silly and these words are space fillers to reach the minimum. The "history rhymes" quote has been attributed to Mark Twain, and implies history does not repeat itself exactly. I have nothing to add at this point.

  • History does not repeat itself

    It is impossible for history to repeat itself because it has to be exactly like the time before and the world is always changing.

  • No it doesn't

    "History does not repeat itself, but It does rhyme" Mark Twain September 15th 2013. This quote summarises my entire point into one sentence. I have never heard of a play for play repeat of past events. Stop using the war as an excuse they were for completely different reasons and under different circumstances.
