I wince whenever I hear people claim „If you don’t know the past, you can’t know where you’re going.“ The fact is that that you should know the past, but, beyond some vague outlines, it can’t tell you where you are going. Last week, I saw Benjamin Netanyahu claim that „history is a map“ and I just got depressed. I don’t know what „history“ could have seen Lincoln’s assassination or Barack Obama’s election. We live in chaos here. History helps a little–but only a little. It does not exist for your services. It can not be your morality, your crystal ball nor your self-esteem.
