If the study of history is for liberating the mind from the perils and pitfalls of the past, the future is best prepared for by studying the past. What lessons can we learn from history as we live in this unprecedented time of prosperity and god-like gluttony? The lives of excess are not sustainable, the addictive nature of our extractive and dominating personalities will be the death of us unless we reshape and perfect our ideas towards something more worthy.
