Why do we forget the past?Watch
Let me just explain where all of this originates. Two days ago, I stumbled upon the speech, as linked above, and recognised the irony of how relevant this is to us NOW, IN 2014. This forgotten man, speaking a forgotten speech in 1940, is so very relevant in 2014. But why? Why? Why did we not simply listen to him? Why, after 74 years can this speech, concerning a world that should be archaic, be required now? We should have changed, why didn't we? We built machines, and scientific ideas, and knowledge, and morality; yet we still destroy each other in meaningless wars. We are still too clever, not kind. Why?
