How will Brexit be taught in 500 years?

Postby Valentian Elysium » Sat Sep 21, 2019 1:38 am

I was just thinking about this one day.
One knows how, for example, in British schools kids have to learn a lot about the Tudors, people that lived 500 years ago? Or how in American schools kids learn about Columbus' arrival in America?
I was just wondering about how in the future, say, 500 years from now, kids in school will learn about Brexit? (if at all)
Will Brexit be just another generic history topic that the history curriculum will skim through, or will it be a huge section in the curriculum?
Please, share your thoughts (if you want to)

There will be videos and much more solid records of what actually happened, unless they've been purged or intentionally forged.

That is, of course, if it actually happens, in which case, it'll probably be skimmed through, because of its endless delays.

If it does eventuate, it will hopefully celebrated as a secondary independence of the UK. But in the more likely event it doesn't happen, it will be taught as a lesson in dire political mismanagement.

It will be an part of a greater history: The crisis of the west and how it recovered from it or why it leds to its decline and downfall.

Outside of a general guide on how not to approach something politically, It would only end up being more noteworthy if it ended up causing mass scale violence or the break up of the UK or something (which hopefully it doesnt). Could be noteworthy for the immediate few decades, maybe century, after that it will probably become a foot note anyway even if that stuff did happen in the grand scheme of things.

In 500 years, Brexit will be a historical footnote of interest to pretty much nobody but a handful of academics with a specific interest in early 21st century British politics. It will be of as little interest or importance to the average person as the Despenser War or the South Sea Bubble. Something that upset a lot of people at the time, but has no relevance to anyone's life centuries after the fact, and is not even historically important enough to be taught in schools (which probably won't exist in 500 years anyway).

Very few people will talk much about what happened 500 years ago. If we're mentioned at all it'll be very generally as part of the several generations who didn't do enough about the climate despite knowing better.

The human party will go on and no one will be talking about or remembering us. Makes your brain itch.

Most of us here on the Continent do consider the Brexit the biggest annoyance currently making headlines in the media, yes. The joke just isn't that funny anymore, if it ever even was that.

Believe me I wish it could end but there are too many people with fingers in the pie who don't want it to happen. 500 years I don't know but I wouldn't be surprised if Brexit was a module in GCSE history in 20-30 years time

Merry Christmas since it is Christmas day every day.

If you want to respond to one of my messages please actually argue your point rather than resorting to slandering my point. It is a practice that young children and politicians use try to be respectful.

If it goes through I'm expecting it to be taught like this: Hey Kids! Ever heard about that time the UK didn't want to be Europe?



That is exactly how it will be taught if it goes through XD

In the town I live in(Some small town in America), People talk bout Brexit like this:

Guy:Hey! Ever heard of Brexit?
Other Guy:Yeah, Isn't it the UK trying to leave those little -Insert swear word here -
In the EU?
Guy:Yep, that's what it is

I wonder how many people I just offended...

I think how it will be taught will depend largely on the effects that it has and how the country responds to those changes.
