A perfect song for the occasion. "When will we ever learn?" Well, if we truly commit ourselves to preventing the election as President of a man who has already made it clear he would repeat his brother's stupidest mistake, I believe we can say we have learned, at least in this case.
Perhaps if every politician, every military leader, and every cleric worldwide would internalize and truly understand the lyrics of Baez's hit song maybe then humankind can say we have learned. Does anyone see it happening anytime soon?History of the world combined with present day observations informs us it is far more likely that we won't learn because humankind has proven itself incapable of really learning time and time again.
