The state and market offered the people the one thing they couldn’t refuse and what they desired more than anything else in the entire world. To become an individual, to become whatever you want without having repercussions from what would be considered traditional or what the norm would be. When the state and market said they would provide you with food, shelter, education, health, welfare, and employment the tides of depending on one’s family shifted drastically. Many try to say that the market and state are the reasons for people to struggle, but that couldn’t be further from the truth, because the market is like the mother and father of the people, they couldn’t survive without it anymore. Everyone is an individual, and they are treated as such. You don’t pay for your neighbors’ taxes, and they don’t pay yours. Everyone is free to be whomever they wish to be, as long as it is within the lines of the law.
The role of historians is that to teach others from the pat and to help protect from any past mistakes that had occurred in the world. For whether it be an industrial incident or the rise of a tyrant ruler who cause the destruction of the people. I believe a historian is the best type of teacher because, those who do not learn from the past are condemned to repeat it. We are one’s who are going to help the world continue on the right path, and if people don’t believe the past it will certainly lead to the end of civilation.
