Reading history is making me very cynical about humans


The more I read about history the more I realize that human beings have actually always been in fact killing each other over petty reasons. This relatively new idea that all people are equal was quickly washed away the more and more I read about history and past conflicts. I must admit it did indeed make me a bit more cynical.

Does anyone else have the same views?

It's done the opposite. Learning human history has made me feel a greater connection to people around me and people who have lived. Some of my favorite moments are digging through some sources and finding human error in them or something goofy that someone did eight hundred years ago. It reminds me that we are all the same, only our environment changes over time.

I am also the type of person that's staunchly opposed to viewing history as a clean linear streak of progression. I think it fluctuates, and some generations are better than others.
