Why is knowing history so important?
Even more than ever before it is obvious that if you fail to learn history you are destined to repeat it. I hear almost daily of Socialist attacking, shouting down or berating those that have a view that is not theirs. They scream of equality and tolerance yet have none of their own. I am reminded of other socialist in another era. That of the National Socialist German Workers Party of 1930s Germany.
They too beat those that did not agree with them. They too spoke of tolerance yet had none. They too had a pet agenda of a superior race and group. That they knew better than anyone else.
I also remember a certain president singing praises of their leader. A president who had the same views and ideas and even practices, which resulted in magnifying a depression to a Great Depression. He also locked up an entire race of people just as the German socialist did. The only difference being he did not slaughter them.
Within history is documents that speak of a Jew who rose from the dead, and those in power made up excuses for the missing body from the tomb. On these documents is a hearing of this person’s half-brother who saw Him after His resurrection and became an ardent follower unto a horrible death. These are the things we learn from history.
Yet today those that do not know history repeat the actions of the socialist in Germany. Why? Because they do not know history. They do not research for the truth and instead take the words of others as right when in reality what they are being told are lies.
Why are they being lied to? Because they have shown themselves to be selfish and self-serving. This is the very same behavior that was of the youth in the 1930. It was their fathers that had messed up and took from them what, as they were told, was rightfully theirs.
Germany was going through its own depression. Caused by their defeat in World War I. A defeat that was only brought about by poverty and starvation due to a poor support system for the very war they fought. Their burdensome conditions that were imposed upon them by the victors of the first war did not help matters and cause bitterness and hatred.
But this hatred needed a focal point, something or someone to take out their anger, but at the same time make it unattainable to truly fix the problems. Thus the hatred of the Jewish people was begun. They hatred for not having their nation grow as they say it should. So they focused all this hatred upon the Jews and those that supported the Jews. That being all other nations. For the Third Reich was formed out of pure humans and all other humans were inferior, but especially the Jews.
In today’s mentality of the left, they are the superior beings and the conservatives are the inferior, especially the Christians and the Jews. For they do not allow those that are superior to live their lives as they see fit and how they wish to live and be treated for they are the new master race. Through their intellect and knowledge for no others can be as smart as they are for they do not see that these select must rule and control all others, which are stupid and inferior.
However by this very mentality, this very thought process they show that in reality they are the inferior, and ignorant. For they did not see that this has been all done before. Not just in Germany, but in Ancient Rome. In Ancient Babylon, in Ancient Egypt. All with the same result. Those that saw themselves as superior and special were killed and slaughter for the most part. While those that survived become the slaves and servants to those that they once call inferior.
This is why it is important to truly seek after knowledge, which is not taught from the auditoriums of speakers called professors, but from books. Not books published in the last twenty years, but books printed before this time. A prime example: The Bible. For it is the ultimate history book.
