Yes I think it is worth it to be fortune tellers and predict the future based on history. Abhishek’s predictions were correct in China’s isolationist policies. Sam was also mostly correct in her predictions about the continued dynastic policies. By looking back we can clearly see patterns and repeated behaviors and policies. By looking back at history we are able to look at repeated cycles and prevent them in the future. Since most of our predictions were correct we are able to predict our future and change it and prevent future mistakes and downfalls.
