The World Map we all know is WRONG

We Have Been Misled By An Erroneous Map Of The World For 500 Years

An explanation for the use of a false map, and why we should switch to teaching our kids a map based on true relative size, was featured in The West Wing,see the clip below.

As mentioned in the video, the map can be used to make certain areas like the US mainland and Europe much larger, giving an illusion of power and importance attributed to its size. Areas like Africa are shown to be much smaller than they truly are.

In our society, we unconsciously equate size with importance and even power.

As the image below shows, the size of Africa is comparable to the total size of China, the United States, India and multiple other European countries.
