Remember That Great Quote?

“Those who don’t remember history are doomed to repeat it” – George Santyana

De Bono, in his work “Why So Stupid? How the Human Race Has Never Really Learned To Think”, says:

“Those who learn the successes of history are doomed to be entrapped by it.”

I must say that De Bono is the next revolutionary. He has also given a law:

“Any system with an input of information spaced out over time, and the periodic need to make the best use of available information, will always be suboptimal. (because the sequence of arrival of the information plays too large a part in its disposition)”

Very insightful!!
