The Past, the Present, the Future.

We should look at the present through a rear-view mirror, we march backwards into the Future. The Present should reflect on the Past for what lies ahead.

We always see the Future as something totally new and unknown.
In reality the Future is nothing else than the repetition of the Past.
The more so because humans tend to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
We say: I did many mistakes in my life, we should say: I did the same mistakes many times.
When will we learn the lesson of History?

May be reflecting on past wars, we wouldn't begin new ones and finish at the same point over and over again.
For the whole human kind history, there was never a war that brought something new or good.
Just more misery and a lot of deaths.
But we still reason in the terms of war for solving our problems...

And the few who understand that it is wrong, still do nothing or too little to stop them...
