“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana
History is not a subject that should be stuck in the past. In fact, it is all around us. If you spend half an hour watching the news you will no doubt be confronted with stories and images of violence, tragedy and catastrophe. However, many of these horrors need not have happened if people learnt the lessons of the past. Any leader, political or otherwise, must have a good understanding of history in order to make the right decisions in the present and for the future. In this respect, the study of history is vital for human progress.
“History is a vast early warning system.” Norman Cousins
