The point of studying history is not dates, names, and facts... it's drinking the wisdom of the dead. It's recognizing that the same trends of human behavior run through our veins. We must remain vigilant, especially when we see old trends sprouting new limbs. And lastly, while history is wisdom, it's not a savior--that title belongs to Christ.

"Capital is accumulated effort and innovation, the sum of human achievement and imagination. Its creation is the aim of civilization. But civilization is everywhere and at all times vulnerable to the darkest human impulses. Government exists to rein in those impulses so that individual initiative can flourish. America’s Founders, schooled in a profound philosophical and literary tradition dating back to classical antiquity, understood the fragility of civil peace and the danger of the lustful, vengeful mob."
Our present leaders, the products of a politicized and failing education system, seem to know nothing of those truths. Pulling the country back from the abyss will require a recalling of our civilizational inheritance.
