This is a great entertaining video, and it got me wondering if it could be a model for some class projects — would it make sense for students to create similar videos demonstrating the historical transitions in, let’s say, the rule of law, or how children were treated?

I’ve got to think about it some more, and would love to hear comments.

At the very least, the video will offer a few minutes of enjoyable entertainment:
