They say those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Let’s hope we’ve learned something, if only how to use “Google” as a verb. I don’t think we could stand another decade of a host of people, places and things that gave us indigestion in the last decade.

That’s plenty of time for another disaster.
