Always say Always
Is there substance to the notion that humans do not learn the
lessons of history? Or, is it more the case that we require
excessive repetition to truly learn?
Perhaps it is a stubbornness to acknowledge 'true cause' Or,
an unwillingness to indulge more creative alternatives to
remedy. If so, this makes us only appear unteachable with the
beholding of 'history repeating' presumed as the evidence
Myth # 2- As it pertains to wars among nations, humanity
has learned little to nothing from the 'lessons of history'.
Throughout history, murder, war, and all
conceivable forms of violence have occurred with
great frequency. For most, these things are simply
accepted as conditions inextricable from the human
condition. As a facet to this perceived reality there
exists a ubiquitous perception that there is circumstantial context in which
organized violence is inevitable and can be viewed as justified.
If a country is found to employ violent means (while citing
defense of life and sovereignty to justification), it has
failed to expend the necessary effort to address the
early signs of trouble...
Reality of things not spoken...
If soon found immersed in conflict, it is now that same nation relegated to
disregard the evidence it can now only feign not to have seen. The issue
has become one of perceived necessity...Course will soon be driven by
primitive responses so well practiced over countless centuries...while
somehow equating the constants found in consequence as proof to efficacy.
The realization that eludes detection- is the tragedy of perpetuated
misunderstanding consequential to believing it is possible sanctioned
violence can accomplish lasting positive outcome.
Sanctioned violence always leads to more sanctioned violence. This has
always been- and will always be the case.
Course will soon be driven by primitive responses so well practiced over countless centuries...while somehow equating the constants found in consequence as proof to efficacy
