History repeats itself over and over and most people seem to let it happen without too much questioning but that may be because the information they got was slow in coming or same as always just plain lies that they expect the people to swallow hook line and sinker. The number of them seems almost endless. There is an old saying - " Power corrupts and infinite power corrupts infinitely"
Sometimes even family members can't be trusted
Sometimes friends or those we used to call friends can't be trusted
Religious as well as political leaders can't be trusted
People are taught to trust only things in life that bring them money and to hell with personal alliances be they family or friends or neighbors.
Trust your intuition !
They say money is power! Well,money can buy power.Even with what we use as money - paper currency which is only an IOU - for real currency such as commodities such as gold or silver or anything that has value other than just a piece of paper with a value attached that can gain or lose value which is likely to lose value with Inflation which has proven to be the case most of the time if, history is any judge.
There is another valuable saying - "Those who forget "history" are doomed to repeat it."
