HISTORY – WILL OUR WORLD EVER LEARN FROM PAST MISTAKES?


Watching what is happening not only here in our country but in the world it really seems that we are truly doomed to never learn from history and continue to make the same mistakes leading to the same end results- either wars or depressions or both and although yes, those whose greed precipates this never ending cycle lose everything the real loser are the masses and our earth.

Imagine if instead the world actually learned history and learned how not to make the same mistakes? What if we the masses realized that we can change the outcome after all we are 99% of the worlds population and we truly do hold the real power of numbers. They say only 88 people hold over 60% of the worlds wealth and that number may be even higher now- think of it- there are over 7 billion people in our world and only 88 people hold that much wealth and 50 of those reside in our country.

Yet too much of our world lives in abject poverty and 3rd world conditions and it seems our country is intent on giving us 3rd world conditions. My question is why do we allow it? Why do we stand by all through history and not take action before it reaches wars and depressions and revolutions? If you know history then you know all the scenerios that transpire like the the French revolution and the two world wars and the great depression to mention the last few times.

So why then do we as a civilization continue to refuse to learn from history………

  1. Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, in Hebrew it is called Yom Hashoah. Six million Jews were killed by Hitler and his followers. So to answer your question: WILL OUR WORLD EVER LEARN FROM PAST MISTAKES? Apparently the answer is NO! Evidence of that is happening today in Syria. Evidence since WW2 is easy to find.
    – The Armenian Holocaust remembrance day is also April 24. At least 664,000 and possibly as many as 1.2 million died during the genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire
    – From April to mid-July 1994, members of the Hutu majority in Rwanda murdered some 500,000 to 800,000 people, mostly of the Tutsi minority, with horrifying brutality and speed.
    – In 1992, the government of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared its independence from Yugoslavia, and Bosnian Serb leaders targeted both Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) and Croatian civilians for atrocious crimes resulting in the deaths of some 100,000 people by 1995.
    – The Cambodian Killing Fields are a number of sites in Cambodia where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979.

    Donald Trump’s use of missiles to attack an air force base was the right thing to do from a humanitarian point of view. It just was not enough.
