History surprisingly repeats itself----There are not so much differences of the life in the past and at the present
While technology has made our life more comfortable and efficient, but life just changed its outward appearances. We still face similar human conditions in our lives. We have to deal with similar issues.
We encounter the dilemma of choosing between our dream and jobs that let you survive just like what a college graduate experienced in 17th century in London who have to work as a clerk to earn bread and have to temporarily sacrifice his dream of becoming a writer. A romantic entanglement among historical figures is just reminiscent of circumstances we are placed in.
When we read stories written hundreds years ago, we are often surprised to find that we have been in strikingly similar situations like characters in the stories. There are not that much essential differences between lives today and in the past.

We tend to realize History has repeated itself when it is too late. It's obvious that we are in a new Cold War, I wouldn't be surprised if we started to practice nuclear siren drills.

"The life hasn't changed much- history repeats" You got that right, history always repeats always. Every generation thinks it's smarter than the last and the reason something failed to work was because they weren't enlightened and smart like they are. There are no new ideas when it comes to govt and social issues, only the repeat of failed ones. It will be different this time because we are smarter and more educated. But alas, 0 wisdom to look at history and learn from it.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

History repeats it self, due to the fact that individuals are not familiar with history, and are blind to the untold, hidden history.

To be fair, most of us aren't essentially condemned to work as farmers all of our lives. Which is what the majority of people for the majority of history have had to be.
