Students of history often note how it becomes plainly obvious that there are cycles in history which keep on repeating. The cyclical nature of politics is summed up in the brilliant satirical film Land Of The Blind.
The film which takes place in an unspecified decade and cleverly compresses a range of differing eras into one timespan should be required viewing for any student of political science. Also activists should watch it.
“So the story of man runs in a dreary circle, because he is not yet master of the earth that holds him.”
― Will Durant
