We live in a universe either comprised of a brave new world (obviously a Huxley referential-metaphor, however overused and misapplied) or one of pure, unadulterated foolishness.
Judgements about the propriety of new approaches and ventures need not be made; but of new modalities of therapies; of re-ordering of definitions; some may view them from a moral perspective, a religious view, or even from the fundamental distinction between that which is really “natural” or not (to which, one might easily respond, if we are going to go down that rabbit hole, then why are you flying on an airplane, which is as unnatural as it gets); but few approach the multitude of social upheaval from a historical viewpoint.
The point is, there is a lack of history — meaning, thereby, simply that all new approaches have no historical basis as to success or failure. There are multiple, ancient cultures which have existed for thousands of years, and have a history of success in terms of raising families, educating children, surviving cultural upheavals, and which have a proven track record — a slew of historically analyzable linear successes.
We could, and should, model after them; but modernity always thinks that it needs no lesson from history and can reinvent the wheel, better and more resilient. But of this brave new world — we have no track record; and so we will just have to wait and see whether or not we are on the cusp of a dramatic new era of success — or of a disastrous future yet to be regrettably experienced.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that it becomes necessary to prepare, formulate and file an effective Federal Disability Retirement application under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, you may want to contact an attorney who has a history of success in getting Federal and Postal employees Federal Disability Retirement benefits.
In Federal Disability Retirement Law, Lack of History should not be a qualification to be admired, but a lesson to avoid.
