Picked up a remaindered hardback copy of the late Tony Judt's 'Reappraisals' today for $7.50 and read in the opening essay:

"In our Manichaean enthusiasms we in the West made haste to dispense whenever possible with the economic, intellectual and institutional baggage of the twentieth century and encouraged others to do likewise. The belief was that that was then and this is now, that all we had to learn from the past was not to repeat it, embraced much more than just the defunct institutions of Cold War-era Communism and its marxist ideological membrane. Not only did we fail to learn very much from the past - this would hardly have been remarkable. But we have become stridently insistent - in our economic calculations, our political practices, our international strategies,e ven our education priorities - that the past has nothing of interest to teach us. Ours, we insist, is a new world; its risks and opportunities are without precedent....

... this perverse contemporary insistence of not understanding the context of our present dilemmas, at home and abroad; on not listening with greater care to some of the wiser heads of earlier decades; on seeking actively to forget rather than to remember, to deny continuity and proclaim novelty on every possible occasion. This has always seemed a trifle solipsistic. And as the international events of the early twenty-first century have begun to suggest, it might also be rather imprudent. The recent past may be with us for a few years longer."

An awesome presentation on Google+ made by another Vincent (+Vincent Wong). And it's presented using the lightbox by this Vincent (+Vincent Mo... me)!

There's some deep meaning here that I haven't figured out yet. In the meantime, enjoy the presentation =)
