History is History

We constantly study history, and a really common remark is that history repeats itself. We note that we never learn from our mistakes, but we persist in studying these mistakes.

There is a historical precedent of humans paying absolutely no heed to the mistakes made before us, and once again, we do the same thing, persisting in studying history. We have learned from studying history that studying history wont do us any good.
