The very possibility that there are timeless truths is a reproach to the life of laxness and indifference that modern egotism encourages.Richard M. Weaver
The atomized individual, cut off from his ancestors and his posterity, does not really see himself. And since he does not see himself, he cannot know himself. His education encourages him to specialize; that is, to know more and more about less and less. He sees history as a fragmented jumble of personalities and incidents which cannot be understood and probably should be ignored. He lacks the intellectual tools to see the patterns that are unfolding directly in front of him.
I was honored to have a discussion with Piero San Giorgio, a writer in Europe who sees a coming discontinuity (as I do). He knows a lot of history. I hope my readers will find this of interest:
