History – a lesson

I love reading about history because it answers nearly all the questions we have today. By looking at history we do get an idea as to what falls on the right side of history and what falls on the wrong side of history. Paradoxically, we get these knowledge from history because it always repeats itself. Most of us never learn as to why certain traits always fall on the right side of history and vice-versa. To what some say “impossible”, history says “inevitable”. Those who foresee the inevitable are called visionaries. Those who fight it are called reactionaries who are condemned to ridicule in history books.
