going above and beyond

Moral limitations or corruption? It's all subjective. Every generation since the beginning of our existence, has had the freedom to make choices. We are molded and influenced by what and who is around us. Out of our existence comes things we judge as good or bad. We don't all think alike, but I believe, thoughts are recycled from generation to generation. Thus, the answer to the question why don't we learn from history? Because we are destined to repeat our history because our base thoughts and needs don't change much. We need air to breathe, water and food to sustain life. Everything else is material. What used to be called six degrees of separation between us is now thought to be two degrees, thanks to social media shrinking our world. We might look different than our ancestors and live in a different time, but we are still basically applying our instinctive hunting and gathering traits.Maybe the reason we don't seem to learn from history has to do with our moral limitations.
