Mr. Tracinski has noted, as have many others, the interesting parallels between the first decade of the 21st Century and the 1930s. It makes for some interesting reading, and I’ll allow it to speak for itself.
Speaking for myself, I believe that history doesn’t so much repeat itself as much as it moves in cycles. Each cycle is different than the preceding one, yet each one is reminiscent as well.
I will proceed in my preparations for the future based, in part, on that belief.
