History and Pessimism
If you read and internalized much of the human history it is filled with sufferings and sadness. You begin to ask if learning history is worth it. The pessimism you cannot repress. Our country today is in another juncture in history. The history again recording the pessimism of the past wherein anguish and sufferings of the multitude of people is being discussed and projected. Perhaps history was written to remind us that the pessimism will continue to haunt us...because we really never learn and apply those pessimism to our present lives; Or we really never learn to move on and correct our shortcomings. Pessimism is here to stay. Optimism seems a show or a performance because behind those smiles and optimism, a lingering question nagging us like an aching tooth, when is it going to stop ?
