What history teaches us about today, tomorrow and the future
One thing for sure that history teaches all is that time stops for no one, and that change is always inevitable, slowly but surely change does and will occur in nature and human societies alike.
Nothing is static or still even though to us, while alive, it make seem that way when born into a society with apparent stability, order and structure, none the less it's all changing.
Societies are like living organisms, and as every society ages, the body changes, starts off strong, strong immune system, but as society ages begins to let guard down, original cells die off, and new cells have a different focus.
Bacteria and viruses begin to confuse the system, body, nation weakens, until broken up and destroyed from within by own elements.
I want to examine history, and even how it's occurring today, how change is all around us, how societies are changing rapidly.
Kim Jong Ill the North Korean leader, even his Government is changing as we speak.
Do you think he'll be leader for much longer? Nothing stops, change doesn't stop, not even for him, and that's what frightens a man like Kim J, is change.
But Time and Space stops for no one, and like every other embedded leader around the world, throughout history, his day will come when time, circumstance, will shove him aside and he'll be yet another figure in history.
History also often means our removal from 'the current'.
One day we'll all be history to someone.
Take a walk through any graveyard and you're seeing history.
In the following posts we will explore history in a way only the Zone can and does.

The more an honest person studies history, the smaller an honest person will feel
In todays world, or any ones period that they're alive, we're usually made to feel that all that really matters is our life period, and the importance of life is measured by our own beliefs and out looks, culture, region, neighborhood, customs ect.
To go beyond that is to kind of loose a sense of self importance.
The more you study history, other cultures, nations, beliefs, the smaller self becomes.
But in regards to history one becomes smaller when one realizes that hoards, millions, billions, maybe even trillions have been born and have since died way before anyone reading this was even a thought.
And out of those trillions who have been born, and since died around the world, each one thought they had a specific destiny changing purpose in this world, and now they're gone.
Each one thought they had found the right religion or belief system, and now they're gone.
Whole societies have come and gone, yet we alive today tend to think it all starts and ends with us.
Kings and rulers who were of way more importance than myself have all perished, are nothing today, even if they left behind great legacies, today they don't exist, gone, returned to nothing.
Sure religion teaches that there's a after world, but even that's splintered and regional.
There's been countless billions who have lived and died who's lives...continued in a bit...one sec.
The more I learn about history, study the rise and fall of other empires from the past, that lasted for over 300 years, the more I realize U.S. will fall, that the U.S. is being ransacked, gutted, fiscally looted, by many players.
Nations are basically banks, now and in ancient days, and when they run out of money, no matter how 'great', nations fall, decay and are broken up into smaller provinces.
The citizens of these nations, past nations, don't die, but rather the nation State that claimed them does.
And the U.S. is not immune from this.
According to history nations whither and die when they're ransacked by those entrusted to run them, when leaders become in different to nationalism, and start putting individual fiscal gain before national interest.
