If you could intervene in history...

The question being "If you had the power to intervene in one historical event, in the knowledge that your actions would have repercussions in the future; what would your intervention be?".

I'd crush that pathetic prokaryote squirming in that swollen primordial soup and end this all from the start.

Correct, but we could just say speck of carbon (and friends) if we wanted to be that picky.

Absolutely! The US and most of the world wouldn't have had to live in fear for 70 years and at least 120 million lives would be saved!

I would meet with the founders of the United States and inform them of the way liberals would twist the constitution (though they saw most of it coming) and try to add more safe-guards against the taking of freedoms and liberty here in the USA.

Find Euler, tell him he's a jerk and that I'm tired of hearing about his stupid paths and circuits.

I would have gutted Abraham like a fish with the same dagger he tried to murder his son with. Then I would have jumped around saying "Now what bitch?" like I was on Springer.

To stop the transport of crimmals to the New World. England and other countries set their crimmals here rather than to send them to jail. The end result is present day citizen of the USA. A direct product of these actions.

People wonder why the USA is against the death penalty, punishing bystanders for not interveining, and such corption in the government; it is due to bad breeding. A product of crimmals having offspring. Morals and ethics cannot triumph when there is none.

You can turn any man into a criminal. Take away his means of providing for his family, destroy his sense of self-worth. Are crime ridden neighborhoods filled with people with the same "criminal" genes?

Tell me, what are the causes of crime?

I might have agreed with you, but I can't figure out what crimmals are. I suspect it's slang for something though, maybe black people? You are pretty bigoted so it wouldn't be a great leap for you to be racist.

No shock there. One without morals and ethics, cannot decipher between right and wrong.

Your the perfect example of years of breeding.

Not a racist at all, I have nothing against niggers.

I would intervene in history to prevent an event from taking place. However, I do not see the point because that event is bound to happen no matter what I do. I might have prevented it from happening at that specific date but I did not prevent it from taking place in the futureā€¦ It probably will not be the exact same event but it will be very similar.

We learn and keep in mind our past mistakes in order to avoid repeating them. In general, if we did not make that mistake today chances are that we will make it tomorrow or after tomorrow.

i would take an automatic weapon and show the government of america back in the 1700's how to create the new weapon

Side: The British Empire

I would not intervene in the least. There are too many variables that could make the world of today a far worse place than it is now, even if a horrendous incident in history (WWII, perhaps) had never occurred.

I would have stopped 9/11.

I would bring better medical technology back to the Civil War.

what i would rather do (this is only because I dislike America):

made sure patton died early so that the russians would have nothing to prevent them.

made sure 9/11 had a bigger explosion and the extra planes heading to the white hous and the pentagon were successful

made sure loads more americans died during their civil war

America doesn't give two farts about what you like or dislike.

You are an idiot. Even while Patton was still alive, his superiors didn't allow him to do anything to the Russians. So you support the USSR, huh?

made sure 9/11 had a bigger explosion and the extra planes heading to the white hous and the pentagon were successful

You can spell "successful", but not "house? Why would you wish that upon any nation? I do not wish the London bus bombings were more successful. I do not wish the Madrid train bombing was more successful. Your support for terrorist organizations makes me sick.

made sure loads more americans died during their civil war.

If you don't understand what our Civil War was about, then I don't think you should criticize it.
