    You should consider that America is merely an extension of Europe, unless you mean to say the native Americans are everything since ww2. One could also combine the chapters of china and India into one or leave them both as mere footnotes or items in the appendix

    History only appears eurocentric because you speak a European language. If you were Chinese you'd know mostly about Chinese history with a chapter only focusing on Europeans once the age of humiliation happens

      And if you were in Madagascar too you also would think Madagascan history is the centre of all. Not true though. China's contributions to history amount to four dubious claims of invention. Papyrus and parchment predate the composition of paper claimed by the Chinese, and that composition was again modified radically before we get to paper. The printing press is self-explanatory, that the Chinese claim that wooden blocks equate to the first sophisticated printing press (essentially every ancient society used seals or blocks to speed up 'printing'). Gunpowder was used as a medicine and in small fireworks or rude weapons by the Chinese until the European powers modified the formula and industrialised it for war. Etc

      The truth is undeniable.

        This is implying that "history" is merely a series of footnotes leading up to the modern, globalized age. You think like this because you're a libtard.

    I was historically illiterate until age 18, because i went to tradeschool instead of highschool. In elementary we only learned about mild topics like Current events, inventors like darwin and edison and the holocaust

    Wasnt the arab world more advanced than Europe during the middle ages?

    European dominance coincides with the colonization of the americas.

      Depends, the crusades show they were on par with each other. I mean you argue that even after the discovery of the Americas the fact the ottomans could expand into Europe means they still were on par. Really the great divergence happens in the mid 18th century, after that it's a widening gap.

      And Arab dominance coincides with the colonization of the Middle East, North Africa, and the Iberian peninsula. The European age of discovery only happened because of the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople.

      No Europe was defenitely much more advanced than the middle east some time before 1492
      the netherlands which was the most urbanized and advanced areas of Europe always got most of its wealth from the baltic trade

        Europe wasn't advanced like the Middle East before the 1500, the Europeans themselves call it their Dark Ages and after the 15th they don't become rich by trading with the Baltic, they become rich by invading the Americas killing its indigenous inhabitants and looting them dry of Gold, then they exploit the natural resources of the lands they stole, then import slaves to get free labor, that allows them to invest and modernize their shitholes in Europe. Of course they don't call themselves parasites they call themselves pioneers.

          Lol no moron
          > Although the trade with the Far East was the more famous of the VOC's exploits, the main source of wealth for the Republic was, in fact, its trade with the Baltic states and Poland (then the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth). Called the "Mothertrade" (Dutch: Moedernegotie), the Dutch imported enormous amounts of bulk resources like grain and wood, stockpiling them in Amsterdam so Holland would never lack for basic goods, as well as being able to sell them on for profit.

          The term itself is from the 14th century, and it was referring a very specific time period spanning from the fall of the western Roman Empire in the late 5th century up to the Carolingian renaissance that began in the late 8th century. The enlightenment thinkers of the 17th and 18th century simply use it as a catch all for everything they don’t like about Christian Europe. They say the same shit puritan colonial America, hence the obsession with the Salem witch trials.

            That applies to the Southern Europeans, the Northern Europeans have been in darkness since their steppe origine until the 1500 when the Southerners recivilize them again.

            Both the Anglo Saxons and the Franks had pulled themselves out of the dark age by the 8th century.

    Colonialism was good. The lesser races benefited more from it than the Europeans.

    In my high school it was Pre-History (Theory of Evolution and Cave Men), Ancient Middle East/Mediterranean (Sumer, Egypt, Israel, etc... Greece/Rome), High Middle Ages (Fall of the Roman Empire, Christianization, Germanic tribes, Feudalization, etc.), Low Middle Ages (emergence of Islam, Decline of Feudalism, Crusades, Renaissance, Reconquista, etc...), Modern Age (Protestant Reform/Religious Wars in Europe, Scientific Revolution, Great Navigations, Colonization, Atlantic Slave Trade, etc...), from there we began to learn about Brazil's History. We only learned about the history of Portugal and a little about Spain because Iberian Union, the rest of Europe's history only became relevant in the French Revolution/Napoleonic Wars, which caused Brazil's Independence.
