Ahh yes.."Those who do not heed the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them". With that very sentiment in mind, and the fate of our society unfolding in front of our eyes minute by minute, I have been re-reading Jared Diamond's 1997 synthesis: "Guns, Germs, and Steel - the Fates of Human Societies". A couple quotes I thought worth sharing (from p.276) that seem quite apropos to our current events and provide a glimpse of the bigger picture:

"The difference between a kleptocrat and a wise statesman, between a robber baron and a public benefactor, is merely one of degree: a matter of just how large a percentage of the tribute extracted from producers is retained by the elite, and how much the commoners like the public uses to which the redistributed tribute is put."

"..why do the commoners tolerate the transfer of the fruits of their hard labor to kleptocrats? This question, raised by political theorists from Plato to Marx, is raised anew by voters in every modern election. Kleptocracies with little public support run the risk of being overthrown, either by downtrodden commoners or by upstart would-be replacement kleptocrats seeking public support by promising a higher ratio of services rendered to fruits stolen."

Hmmmm..
