“In order for a new school to operate in a well-grounded fashion, it first needs to learn about its roots-the origins of the guiding ideals on which it is based. Moreover, any organization or social movement that fails to understand and honor its past is likely to lose its sense of direction along the way, perhaps permanently…   Becoming familiar with the principles in their historical context ensures that their original meanings will be preserved and passed on to the next generation..”
