We should never repeat the mistakes of the past

“The vast majority of those intellectuals whom I know seek for nothing, do nothing, and are at present incapable of hard work. They call themselves intellectuals, but (…) they treat the peasant like animals, they learn badly, they read nothing seriously, they do absolutely nothing, about science they only talk, about art they understand little.”
The Cherry Orchard
by Anton Chekhov
