Man is Not a Learning Animal

The notion that ordinary people are capable of learning is an urban myth no more credible than belief in UFOs, Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. It is a religion without a God, rather a pantheistic cosmology that posits man as the center of the cognitive universe.

The fact that men say so glibly "men do not learn from history" without realizing the implications of the statement is more proof that they do not learn at all. Everything is historical. Everything is experience. If men learn nothing from history it is because they do not learn, period.

As it was in 1930, so it is now.

The only thing that has changed is the weapons to be used at the climax. They will make for a showstopper ending.

As Nietszche said ... without a change of actors this play would be unbearable to see repeated so many times.

Tex, I believe legions of men have learned from history and have awakened to that fact within their lifetime. The lies are what is perpetuated from generation to generation and that is what is carried on through history. The ones who have seen the truth of the world and its temporary evil prince by Gods grace have carefully been marginalized so as not to have an impact on that current world system. Here is the trick for every human born into this fallen world. They have to respond to Gods nudging and when they do that by receiving Jesus that get to know the entire dope on this wicked world system. Otherwise we would all be futile lemmings, thinking that we make a difference and consigned to giving it our all in a seemingly altruistic but nevertheless self-centered way.

"Sufficient injections of money will ultimately always reverse a deflation," said Bernanke.

Yes Ben, only if someone uses the money. What better NEED for money than to HAVE to fight the enemy! What enemy is that you say? What difference does it make? The enemy only needs to be credible enough for idiocracy to believe.
