Wisdom of History

This is the second part of “Wisdom of History”, but all are welcome to attend.  Do the lessons passed down to us by history, lessons whose origins may lie hundreds, even thousands, of years in the past, still have value for us today?  Is Santayana's oft-repeated saying, "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" merely a way to offer lip service to history or can we learn from it? This is the second-half of the course examining the patterns of history.  They show us that, by ignoring them, by choice or because we've never learned to see them, is to risk becoming their prisoner, repeating the mistakes that have toppled leaders, nations, and empires throughout time.
