Those ignorant of History are destined to repeat it
Is there a pattern in history? Thomas Jefferson stated: “History by apprising them of the past will enable them to judge of the future”. Revisionists have flooded internet with disinformation on study “The Relative Influence of European Writers on Late Eighteen-Century American Political Thought” conducted in 1984 by political scientists Donald Lutz and and Charles Hyneman. Their study was published 1984 in “The American Political Science Review p. 84. The 10 year study concluded at least 34% of Founding Era quotes came directly from bible.
- How would Thomas Jefferson’s quote parallel with Ecclesiastes 3:15 What is happening now has happened before, and what will happen in the future has happened before, because God makes the same things happen over and over again or Ecclesiastes 1:9: History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. James Madison (Father Of The Constitution) wrote: Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
