Viewpoint: Precedent Historical Repetition

History is repeating itself. The age of Humanism is slowly marching off the world stage, but what comes next?   Precedent historical repetition says that sooner or later another nation will rise. After all, the human race has lived through the rise and fall of many great nations. History is repeating itself.

The situation among the cultures is precarious. The Iron Curtain is slowly rising out of its sleep and finding its home among nations that want to protect their economy and the pure ethnicity of their race. Cultural diversity is leaving the stage.  History is repeating itself.

The rudimentary ordinances of nature are being disobeyed. What was once one plus one equals two is now one plus one equals whatever makes you feel good.  History is repeating itself.

Over one million people are on the run.  The number of people who have died so far on the ground, in airplanes, in the seas is heartbreaking. Men talked, yet children cry, children die, women cry, women die. History is repeating itself.

In every corner of the world, there is tumult. Philosophical antagonism demands closed borders.   An antagonism based on supremacy, it has plummeted us even nearer to a world war.  It enacts to dominate, to make all men and women think alike. This antagonism has no mercy, no understanding, and no love. History is repeating itself.

"What are you doing, Child?" The Prophet asked.
"Watching the New Year come in over the earth."
"Oh, that's nice."
"No, it's not nice Prophet. It's sad."
"Why, Child. What do you see?"
"In every corner, I see children starving, women crying, human life wasted. Prophet, don't people ever read about the past?"
"No, Child. That's why History repeats itself."

Happy New Year Everyone,
Alles Gute Zum Neuen Jahr Alle,
Bonne Nouvelle Pour Tout Le Monde,
Feliz Nuevo A Todo El Mundo,
Felice Nuovo Per Tutti,
L'Shana Tova.

Shalom Aleichem,
