"So What"

From researching and our comparisons we have learned that history repeats itself. It just represent itself differently but it does the same things. Such as the internet and the columbian exchange. They were both ways to exchange information. Only the effects of one is greater that the other. The internet has more of an effective impact on the world than the columbian exchange.IN most situations history repeats but hopefully in the future we'll learn from our mistakes and fix it. Also we've learned that things that happen in the past influence some of the rules and regulations we have now. To prevent what went wrong then to not happen now. Yet it still continues to happen. Our economy has only made a fair amount of effort to change. It still does wrong to most, even the people who have so less then others. But there are some people who use their power and resources for good. But few people see's the good of what people have done for others. Most do wrong though. You would think by now we would learn but we haven't learned much. People who don't know the history of what happened are most likely to repeat the same mistakes. An assumption would be that people who know the history of what happened wouldn't repeat past mistakes of the past but humanity does and thats the problem now. There should be more effort to make a change. http://bigthink.com/learning-from-the-past/why-we-refuse-to-learn-from-history

"Now What"

We have to try, try and change the world. Overcome child slavery which is still happening all around the world.http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/articles/2014-10-20/child-labor-is-still-prevalent-around-the-world-dot-heres-how-to-eliminate-it

Everything starting with the triangular trade,when we let people from Africa get taken with out their say. To a place that they didn't know, to be treated inhumanely. We must change now to help our world to get better and grow better .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYfCRRNxX2o

We can change everything with a little kindness and honesty. Corporations don't have honesty sadly and there one of the main reason we keep falling. Its time to change, its time to make a difference.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iiLM5VT3hc We have so many resources to help our world grow and become better, for example the internet. It's revolutionary we can do anything with it. But with it's upsides there are down sides. People can be hacked, bulling, identity theft, ex.
