Lists can be fun while also being very frustrating. Take this list of the 25 most important events in human history.
The items on this list are broad, Western-centric, and sometimes ill-informed and, at the same time, ignore the events that directly led some of those on the list.
No matter. What do you think of this list that ignores Buddha, the harnessing of electricity, the discoveries of Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, the interstate highway system, the slave trade, the establishment of schools and libraries, and much of the history of Asia, Africa, and South America? How would youn change this list?
Let the arguments commence.
