"Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it."
Lately, it seems like our society is attempting to replace truth with power, forgetting that all other societies that have done this have failed miserably.

Drawing inspiration from Walter Scheidel's book, The Great Leveler: Violence and the History of Inequality, we explore the history of wealth inequality and discuss how the cure has tended to be far worse than the disease.
