History has always been my greatest passion. It fascinates me with its stories, events, and its profound and bigger-than-life characters.
I felt the need to popularize history and bring it to the forefronts of our society.
Carl Sagan popularized science and astronomy, and many more inspired by his example. We have Degrasse Tyson and Michio Kaku, who present the most complex scientific subjects in quantum physics and astronomy in a straightforward language. They have made the science not only understandable but intriguing and attractive.
But why nobody talks about history in such an approach?
History is the story of us. It tells us how we arrived where we are today and where we go, or should go.
In the words of Robert A. Heinlein:
“A generation which ignores history has no past — and no future.“
Everything begins with knowing the past.
I hope to popularize accurate and unbiased history and tell the untold stories of the past, shed light on why we live the way we live today and how to build a better future.
