“In chapter III, page 78, we say, ‘If we do not learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.’ We must precisely state that what we repeat is not only history but our errors under ever-changing material conditions. History does not repeat itself; it cannot. Nothing can. The first law of the universe is everything changes, all the time. Only those who see history as events and not as a process can make this error.”
