I found this while browsing for some information. It seems similar 'causes' persist. It reminded my of a multiple choice question on a 'stardardized' history test that I took in 11th grade. The question pertained to the 'cause' of World War I, and the mulitiple choices where 1. militarism, 2. nationalism, 3. imperialism, 4. entry of the US. The test answer was 4 - which was so wrong, but that is the answer the teacher would only accept. A friend took the test a year before me, and he got it wrong because he picked the 'right' answer. We even went to the teacher to argue about it. So when I took the test, I picked #4 then proceeded to write an essay on the test form as to why the 'official answer' was wrong and the other three answers were correct. When the test was handed back to the class and the teacher went through the answers on the test with the class, the teacher and I got into a big 'discussion' about that particular question. Teacher was not amused. I don't like the dissemination of false information in the classroom. :grumpy: CAUSES OF THE WAR http://www.historychannel.com/thcsearch/thc_resourcedetail.do?encyc_id=226139 Will humanity ever be free of motivation to go to war?
