Tariq AD Posted over 2 years ago Is the exploration of history worthwhile without practical applications? I believe that both are equal in term of importance. We should always look ahead and try to resolve the issues today to improve the world we live in and ensure that we pass on to the next generation a planet that they can use and that is not on the verge of physical, or moral, destruction. At the same time, I believe that history repeats itself, and that by studying the past, we can decipher the present and better plan for the future. Technologies and political lines change. The human has not changed much and the basic human nature has not evolved much in the last millennium.
