The Importance of History

One very evident problem of Kurdistan's division across multiple states and its historic failure to develop its own state is that there is not a single generally agreed upon historical narrative of the Kurdish people actually controlled by the Kurdish people. It is also one of the primary reasons for this continued division and lack of independent statehood. Solving this problem is far more important than training more oil engineers.

I think that "they, whoever they are" are applying the same old "divide and conquer" paradigm to Kurdish society. Indeed a unified narrative of Kurdistan controlled by the Kurds themselves would be a worthy goal. Life is far more than materialistic ambitions.
