Well, I'll be shucked cousin Vinchenzo, if your "correction" to Wayne is accurate.

A statement so profound likely comes from the ancient city of Babylon located 50 odd miles from present day Baghdad, Iraq.

Hummm???........ wonder why Babylon is in total ruins today when it was so ideally located for world domination in matters of power and commerce.

Perhaps being on the watch for a history repeat would be a self preservation strategy.

Be well,

Hi Wayne -
Always good to hear your "voice" on Clayart.  But a small correction:
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana, The Life of Reason, 1905. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.

Mike, Mel and all,

Humans, especially American humans, seem to be losing memory capacity as generations change.

Ceaser said it best: "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it".

Does anyone remember the Watts riots in L.A. in the early 70's? I lived through those, got burned out of the apartment block I was living in. People then were "sticking it to the man" by burning "the man's"
property.  Problem was, those buildings were the apartments and stores and neighborhoods that the people doing the protesting depended on. My neighbors and I watched it happen, lost everything.  We were not protesting, we were shaking our heads, trying to save what little we had.  But I digress.

This is nothing new, It has happened many times before, it
(unfortunately) will happen again.
