I'm a really big fan of history. The real thing not the channel.
I truly believe in the quote of Thucydides that "History is Philosophy teaching by examples."
I also believe in the George Santana quote, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
So to combine those quotes it could be said that, "Those who do not love the wisdom taught by the historical examples are doomed to repeat the same mistakes suffering the same or worse consequences." M.E.
I've been disappointed with the History Channel for some time and now I know why.
