Our story written in blood
When did mankind’s history begin? The answer is 6,000 years ago. And about 73 per cent of human history is dedicated to wars, with 27 per cent to development, rituals and traditions.
When we turn the pages of history, we find that Alexander and Hector are more popular than Buddha. Why? Because they have fought hundreds of wars, and they were heroes in those battles. They have written their name with the blood of others.
Mankind’s history also teach us that every peaceful interlude is just the preparation for the next great war. Thirteen years of peace in Macedonia gave birth to Alexander’s conquest of the world, while seven years of peace in Sparta lead to the War of Troy. And even the birth of gods have lead to fights.
So it will perhaps not be wrong to conclude that mankind’s history is written in blood.
