In 1847, archaeologists uncovered a King’s library of more than 23,000 clay tablets dating to about 707BC, containing information on everything from business deals to reports from border patrols. On one of these tablets was written, “The Earth is degenerating today. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer obey their parents... It is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching.”
Almost three thousand years later, that world hasn’t changed, corruption still abounds, but the world hasn’t ended, either. Everyone makes mistakes; everyone has moments of less than stellar judgment.
