Mike Gemmati Dr. Malik HST 102.07 10/7/07 Question # 1 Martin Luther King Jr., a famous American civil rights leader once said, “ Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. When deciding my view point on the topic of what do I think is the importance of the study of the world history to us as Americans is, this quote played a large role. The United States of America for many reasons is the sole super power of the world. I feel that with this title there are many things that a country of our power is obligated to do and the best way to do this is to have a vast knowledge of history because it tends to repeat itself. In the first place, history offers a storehouse of information about how people and societies behave. Understanding the operations of people and societies is difficult.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
