Only time will tell, unless we can torture the present and get it to rat on the future.

Our history tells us our future in every respect apart from the nature of the tools we’ll use.
We can’t get over our history.
We can’t get over the fact that it tells us our future.
In denial we convince ourselves that our future is a virgin and undiscovered land to which us few pilgrim cognoscenti may emigrate and colonise, avoiding the mistakes that history tells us we’ll repeat.

History repeats itself,
if you do the same thing again,
and you expect something different,
If you don’t know history,
you don’t know you’re doing the same thing again

@davewiner: ...like the NYT saying democracy isn't dead, and they know it because the Koch Brothers told them. j.mp/hcoh

@jimfenton @FTC It's certainly annoying. What's the point of editing a shortlink if it gets rewritten seemingly on your clipboard?
