    You know this is the same with everything in life.
    You would think history teaches us anything, but alas.
    Feel free to disagree but the world is changing, and we have no control over it.
    E.g., imagine Obama had enough balls to put Vladimir to his place, but it seems like it’s not happening, welcome third world war.
    Awesome post, thanks!
