A Quick Look at Now

The world is a mess. War in the middle east, disease spreading in western Africa, stocks on a roller-coaster ride, pirates on the east coast of Africa, and many other things going on.

What many people don’t realize is that these things have been happening again and again over the centuries. Most recently, in the 1910’s through the 1930’s when we maintained through WWI, the Spanish Flu, Black Tuesday on Wall Street, and the Great Depression.

Before that there were other instances when the world was in rough waters. It seems to happen at least once every century. And we always seem to muddle through, a little changed, but not unrecognizably so. We will do so again.

Look into the history of the decades and events mentioned. You might be the one to see the solution to the situation we are in now.  And if you do see it, let the rest of the world know.
