I have ADHD issues. If I'm not super interested in the topic, it's hard for me to write about it. Also, I have issues recalling what I'm interested in under pressure. ADHD has its quirks.

Thanks for the ideas so far

The sinking of the USS Liberty by the Israelis and the 1958 bomb plot against the US embassy in Cairo perpetrated by Mossad but instead were captured red handed before thier plot hatched. Two false-flag attacks meant to draw the US into conflicts against arab nations and thier connection to 9/11.

Dust Bowl
Holocaust
WWI
WWII
Vietnam
Hippies

The list goes on...

EDIT: A couple important ones, Bay of Pigs and the Cold War.

what do you mean by the topic? the 20th century had more shit happen in it than any other century, like millions if not billions of topics there must be one that you are interested in.

-music through 20th century
-WWII or one
-Vietnam war + Nixon + hippies
-LSD (my friend did this and it was great)
-the bogus war on marijuana
-the history of other drugs from marijuana, opiates, amphetamines

that's what I'd do

That just sounds like you're being lazy

Just pick something, the 20th century is filled with topics that you can write a research paper on

Yes, there must be one, but unless something really jumps at me, I can't really write. It sounds dumb, it is dumb, and so am I, but humor me and I will appreciate suggestions. Such as these.. I like how people keep suggesting drugs. How did you all know that would peek my interest? ultimate-psychics.

I'm thinking about LSD actually.

darkcheef: No sir, but I do not deny being lazy as well.

The first thing that came to your mind should of been the World Wars and/or the Great Depression.
#22
The MK-ULTRA project and how the CIA may have inadvertently started the drug counterculture.
#23
Write about how WW2 left every other international superpower in ruins, and that this gave America the opportunity to expand and rise to world wide supremacy.

Hell, with everybody struggling to salvage a ruined continental Europe, a ruined Japan and a ruined Soviet Russia--Americas military was intact and fully operational and there was no other country involved in the war with the resources to challenge the then thriving US economy.

Write about how this period led to America dominating the international automobile market, for instance, since Germany, Italy and Japan were too ****ed up at the time to compete.

Write about how this opened doors for american commercial interests which are maintained and protected today by the military industrial complex.

A fascinating topic all its own.
