History repeats itself, first as tragedy, sec.. Karl Marx Quotes
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.- Karl Marx -
@Fokhrul Islam The first time is always original and based on material circumstances. The second time is an imitation implanted onto a different material circumstance. Fascism today is only a farce. It is a second coming which is intentionally copying the original which had different material circumstances. The first time, it repeats as a tragedy because even if we know what will happen, there's nothing we can do to change it. The second time, it repeats as a farce because we're not surprised when it goes wrong and we know what to expect.
