Are we doomed to repeat history?

It is impossible not to think of Matthew 7:26-7 when hearing of the implosion of the huge condo complex in south Florida. While the tragedy sounded like the 9/11 World Trade Center attack, it easily could be attributed to “the foolish man, which built his house upon the sand” and ultimately collapsed.

But does this tragic incident augur a future collapse of not just Florida, as in the 1920s land boom failure but also of the U.S. economy as seen in the Great Depression? We certainly appear to be reliving the Roaring 20s with our pandemic, a speculative stock market and reckless spending. Will we become those who did not remember history and be doomed to repeat it?
