34. How we wish collective memory could never forget! Alas....
Edited on Thu Mar-24-11 02:06 PM by Amonester
History is too often viewed as (albeit, not by everyone, thanks to dedicated scholars) some kind of a burden, or just a dastardly BORING subject, at a time when it should be regarded as an immense 'pool' of knowledge that would help understand most contemporary events.

But the narrow-minded (to say the least) faux-neeeoooz kkkoch-$*ckers are bent on destroying education, instead of improving it using online encyclopedias and yes, physical 3D libraries, of course. Sad and dangerous aren't strong enough words...

Times are tough. But was there ever a period and a place when they were not? The truth is: no. It's just that today, if something tough happens on the opposite side of the earth, there is a big possibility that the whole world will know about it in less than one minute.

This revolt in Libya is rough and tough for many, and nobody can predict exactly what will happen, but more often than not the courageous bravery of a few can inspire and bring up the best in all peace-minded people, even when using violence to defend what is right cannot be completly avoided. Whether we like it or not, life itself is a risky venture.
