Historiography

Historical Viewpoints:

Declension Model:
Things are always getting worse. There is an ideal past. It is human nature to remember only the best parts of your life.

Progressive Model:
As we learn from history, societies become more just and efficient. "My future is so bright, I've got to wear shades!"

Cyclical:
History repeats itself.
