Do you think the younger generations of today place any value on the lessons of history? Explain?
I'm not sure they do. Everything is instantaneous these days - just click or push a button. Because of this young folks have not been trained to delve deeper or to seek roots. The lessons of history become an oversight since there is no immediate gratification to knowing what led them to this point. I also think American sociey, in particular, does not appreciate or emphasize the gifts of memory and wisdom available from the senior population. Youth rules and that places history in the background.
I don't think they do, but I don't really blame them. There is a lot of weight put on them for the future. A lot of the problems from the past that kept getting pushed on to be dealt with later will have to be dealt with by them, and I don't know if they can handle that. Perhaps history to them is a sad story they don't want to keep reading.
