If the history
of just two generations were taken away, a country would become cut off from all
possibilities of further progress That is the difference between human beings and animals.
Animals are not able to make progress because they
do not have schools. They do not have any way to transfer knowledge from older generation
to the new generation.
At its birth an animal begins life right from where its
father began, and its offspring will do the same.
The human being through education, can help his
childs life begin from where he left off.
All human progress depends upon transfer of accumulated knowledge
from generation to generation.
If you visit Mexico and see the ruins of Mayan
civilization, you will be astounded.
They rose to fame around 900 AD. Now there is not more than
3.5 million Mayans in the world. They do not know how their civilization lost the glory.
