Good watch, very informative.

So, the short version.

Inheritance of the Greek and Roman empire's infrastructure allowed trade to flourish and with trade came exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Infighting between intellectual schools led to a king making a martyr out of an opposing philosopher which created rebellion, infighting and revolution.

Not taking the crusades seriously was a huge mistake and only furthered said revolutionary anti-intellectual thinking.

Then a king thinks its a great idea to declare war on the Mongols, with predictable results.

Then another king thinks its a great idea to ask the Mongols for help, with predictable results.

Meanwhile Europe figures out how to eliminate the need for overland trade and the money to the Middle East gets cut off.

TLDR: Globalization brings knowledge, war and insular thinking brings the opposite.

You can equally make the argument that it's the surplus resources available to a militarily powerful colonial empire that enabled the growth of a golden age of science, and when the empire's military power declined to the point where it was forced to rely on foreigners to administer it's military and fight its battles, the resulting defeats and chaos meant that they could no longer support or defend their class of scholars and philosophers.

TLDR: Anyone who says "History, therefore this policy is correct" is wrong in whole or in part.

This guy was wrong about Trump working on infrastructure but he's not the worst youtuber.
