The 10 Most Significant Historic Events In Our Lifetime

I thought this survey from the Pew Research Center was interesting. It was done between June 16th and July 4th of a random national sample of 2,025 adults, and has a margin of error of 2.3 points. Respondents were asked to name the 10 most significant historic events in the lifetime. The chart above shows the results for the population in general -- and the charts below show the results according to generation, race/ethnicity, political preference, gender, region, education, and income level.

  1. Up until this election of the new fascist gov'mint I would say it was 911. Not because they destroyed the towers but because that event made a bunch of "we are scared of imaginary creatures" USA voters allow Bush to get the (un)Patriot Act to pass, which allows the gov'mint to arrest any one, at any time, for any reason and then bring them to Gitmo and torture them!!!
