We all have come on this earth to have experiences. So what most of us probably will do most of the time is learning by experiencing. We need to have experiences because if someone explains something to us (for example parent, teacher or boss) chances are you still have to understand it yourself. Nobody can understand something for you. You have to do that all by yourself. And if we keep educating our people so they will have no misunderstanding, they also would have no experience. If there was no experience then everything would be fully predictable. And in a predictable system there is no free will. So there are certainly drawbacks in reusing what you have been thought and accepting that blindfoldedly.
So now we come to the re-use part. We are being thought at home, at school, at work to re-use. Because others have already invented things. So there is no need to re-invent it. And that’s where things sometimes can go wrong. Because this re-use syndrome is all around society, it tends to copy things we know from the past (which might be a good thing). But it might also prevent us from thinking in radical renewal or fresh new ideas, which I think humanity is in desperate need for at this time in history. Therefore I vote for a renewal strategy where we stop looking back at the past most of the time, and start looking more to the future. And have no fear for radical renewals if they help humanity a step forwards.
