The knowledge of history is a vital, yet sometimes neglected part of humane education.
Nevertheless, it can provide so-called modern man with the new outlook on many issues.
One of these is the issue euthanasia: the one that hasn't been associated so much with assisted suicide back in the Ancient Times, oppose to how people find it these days.
Famous Roman historian Suetonius, to give you just one example, reported that Emperor Augustus experienced an euthanasia (good death) while... Passing away in his wife's arms.
Wouldn't it be even better for all dying human beings to die in arms of Jesus or Mary? Just mentioned kind of euthanasia – at least for me – wouldn't be controversial at all...
People must never forget about their history. If they do then, sooner or later, language distorted by evil minds will bring disasters upon the whole world they live in.
