I wish I read more history. I think there are so many fascinating/interesting stories that we can learn from. I also think that so many ideologies are being replicated in today's society that are actually just products of other people's ideas from years ago.
I also think it is important we do not forget the past. There are many horrific events that we cannot afford to forget.
I recently followed this Twitter account.
It retweets the 2nd World War as if it were happening on this day in 1939 and for 6 years to come.
It reminds you of the events that took place just 70 years ago.
How hard is it for you to empathize with that world?
A world torn apart by radical ideologies? By evil.
How far have we come?
Are we much different?
Could we ever go back to that world?
Are we better now?
