A few people I’ve gotten to know over the years have asked if I have a history degree. When they do I refer them to my brothers who both have degrees and have taught in the subject. Recently I came across a video that connects several of my favorite topics, history, systems theory, economics, and archeology. I believe it’s worth sharing.
In the video the author explains how he believes that the systems society was based on prior to the ~1200 BC collapsed causing a reset for humanity. I love how as an aside he includes a reference to the emergence and popularity of a nearly common alphabet. Remember, according to Epcot, ‘if you can read this, thank the Phoenicians.”
