The Beneficiaries of History

When confronted by sweeping change, humanity tends to divide into two broad groups. Those that are either forced to or figure out how to adapt appropriately to it. And those that ignore, scoff or fight against it.

The vast majority of humanity has never lived through anything like this, we have never had to adapt to a changing reality this quickly.

Learn from history, embrace change and you too may count yourself among its lucky beneficiaries.

“History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future.”
Robert Penn Warren
