Ask A Genius 330 – No One Expects the Spanish Inquisition
October 24, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: The primal thought was the search of the generations of people and how it was interrupted. And to see the level of interruption is a real tough job for someone. There are many prejudges and almost constantly, year by year, a group of people like German Jews, and European Jews faced in the 1920s.
After more than six million being slaughtered, and 5 times more were forced away from their homeland, the story doesn’t end here. The genocide in Lebanon in Africa is another story for this story, with killing and expelling people from their countries in the 70s.
And Syria, maybe not the best country in the world but was functioning well, and now with the civil war going, we can see how Hell on Earth looks like, and Iraq, after few mall wars against Iran, now it has 10 thousand of killed people under their name because of the dictation.
So, if you zoom out and take a look at these countries alongside the Spanish Inquisition, you will see that all of these countries that are in Africa and the Middle East were well-functioning countries, and pretty stable for a long period of time, and all of a sudden, something appears where the whole nation is wiped, pushed away from the land and what else not. And here in America, we are playing under a different politic that reflects on the world.
We are not expecting the future to be against us, but as it seems it will be. What will happen with the disruption of the happenings in the world in the next three to five decades will be nothing compared to what we have seen in the past years.
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Most people won’t be prepared for the change.
Rosner: What most people can do when facing the future humans, is that they can die, like every person in the world. IF you don’t get ended by the disruption, you will simply get older and older and die out of old age. That’s how things work.
Old generations get wiped out, New ones come and are getting better at accepting the future and making the most out of it, and that’s just the way this world works. That’s all.
