do you believe that those who do not study history, are doomed to repeat it?

Do you feel that this is true of all people in our world. Do you feel that other countries believe this? Do you think practicing this would stop the killing?

I don't think that would have any bearing on what is going on now. History unfortuneately makes a habit of repeating itself.

I don't believe in this exactly. I think the reason that history tends to repeat itself is because people think the same ways. They think the same and keep attracting similar results. If they were to change their thinking, the results would be different. Thinking in terms of peace, rather than war, will stop the destruction in the world. Do not be against war, but be in favor of peace. There is a huge difference in how we look at this problem and the previous sentence explains that difference. Again, instead of being against killing, think in terms of being in favor of life...that is how people can change the world.

I love the study of history. It is fascinating to know how people in the past lived, hoe they thought, and what lead to wars. Yes, I do feel that we can not grow as an individual, as people, as a nation if we do not study history. This is indeed the case for all countries and all societies.
