1. World War II (WWII) (1939-1945) World War II is frequently talked about in today's society due to its profound impact on global politics and the subsequent course of history. The war had vast implications for the world order, with the establishment of the United Nations and significant shifts in power dynamics (Beevor, 2012). Given the scale of devastation and the Holocaust, it remains emblematic of destructive potentialities and serves as a reminder of the need for peaceful conflict resolution (Banks, Ybarra, & Sobo, 2012). 2. The Civil Rights Movement (1954-1968): The movement continues to spark discussions about racial equality and social justice. Without this movement, historic legislation such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which eradicated discrimination based on race or color, may not have been enacted (Klarman, 2004). The movement's ideals and strategies inspire contemporary movements such as Black Lives Matter and the fight against systemic racism (Lebron, 2017). 3. The Fall of the Berlin Wall (1989): It was a significant milestone in ending the Cold War and marked the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union. It remains relevant as a symbol of the triumph of democratic ideals over authoritarian regimes (Sarotte, 2014). It has had an everlasting influence on international politics, leading to German unification and possible rethinking of alliances like NATO. 4. The 9/11 Attacks (2001): The terror attacks have vast implications on global security and the war on terror. Post 9/11 policies have significantly impacted individual freedoms, international alliances, and the rise of Islamophobia (Jackson, 2007). The impact on the global economy and the subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are still crucial discussion points in assessing the cost of war against terror (Stiglitz & Bilmes, 2008).
