Learning from the Past
In conclusion, this The Twentieth Century Headache taught us three very important lessons, which prevents us from making the same mistakes from the past again.
The First World War was caused by old rivalries and resentments that weren't solved. How can two developed countries resolve their problems fighting, rather than talking? We must talk about our problems or diferences, so then together,we can find a solution or an answer. We live in an individualist world, where even success is not shared, where every person wants to make his own life without the help of someone. This deteriorates the relationships between humans, so we must take action and stop this, starting by asking help or solving the differences between us, so we can be one nation, not miilions in one specific territory.
Also after seeing the fatal consequences that the Second World War produced, it is time we stop thinking only in us, and start learning about tolerance, and accepting differences that we may have with other people. It is not possible that diversity had caused so many deaths, forgeting that diversity enriches us with knowledge and criteria.
Finally, in the Cold War the whole world lived under suspicions and insecurity, not knowing when or where a conflict was going to begin. The lack of communication made these two countries unable to resolve their problems. So, to stay away from this kind of problems that we lived in the past, we have to learn how to communicate correctly and be honest, especially between nations.
We can not change what we made in the past, but we can learn about our mistakes and change our future, seeing the consequences that our actions can cause.
