History Repeats Itself

I find it interesting that Chicago Race Riots of 1919 coincided with the Spanish Flu of 1919 and what do we have today? Race Riots and Coronavirus(Flu)? Is it merely a coincidence that history repeats itself in exactly the same way 100 yrs later! What does this say about Schooling? And what followed the Spanish Flu? The Great Depression!

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” ~ Carl Sagan
