Man, the Holy Roman Empire was SERIOUSLY Messed Up

1000 years of European history, via the awesomely observant Noah Millman.

That explains why Shakespeare could not be a German, why Bach would have had to be an Italian if he wasn't German, why critical thinking is particularly German, why quality and specialty products remain the German niche in the global economy, and why there is no German civilization but a German culture.

The only thing that would make this better would be some kind of date reference. Still, how cool is that? Thanks for sharing.

This goes too fast to be valuable for any real purpose, I think, unless one watches it more than once (like quite a few times). If the viewer knows some European history, keeping up with it is still difficult, esp. the earlier centuries, at least in my case. If the viewer doesn't, forget it...
