Knowing history can help us take fate into our hands
Question from the Internet:
How does a keen knowledge and understanding of history help to make sense of what is happening in the world right now?
It is extremely important that we recognize the eerily, helplessly recurring, vicious historic cycles in history.
We keep building new civilizations on the ruins of the previous one, only to repeat similar or the same mistakes, distorting, corrupting whatever hopeful ideology, the system we tried to build until the civilization self-destructs and we start again.
And the time between the civilization-ending explosions shortens and their intensity grows. Now we are close to copying what happened only 70–80 years ago but on a much greater, global scale.
We blindly, instinctively stumble from crisis to crisis because we are “unconsciously” driven, governed by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic and exploitative nature.
And we are not even aware of this!
Today — with the help of the pandemic and the ensuing crisis — we received the chance, to finally snap out of the unconscious development, recognize the forces, desires, intentions that drive all of us.
Only when we understand what caused the recurring vicious cycles, why our own civilization is in perpetual crisis, heading for an unprecedented, global meltdown, only then can we start redirecting Human history towards a better, conscious, constantly corrected path, taking our fate into our own hands!
And we can do that only through a unique, purposeful, and very practical educational method that can teach us how to build the crucially necessary, mutually responsible and mutually complementing Human interconnections above and against everything that separates us!
