"Disaster can be our friend."

Although history never repeats itself,

except awkwardly and approximately, we are in the metaphorical sense back in the 1930s. Which is to say, flat broke, getting fiscally dust-bowled, and not yet even half aware of the war clouds on the horizon. And this despite enemies that make no secret of their desire that we should become extinct. (And are progressing now towards making Israel extinct, by way of clarifying their position. And while we are washing our hands like Pilate.)

Which is where I look for hope: to the clouds. For if it is beginning to rain tarnish, they must have a silver lining. -- David Warren

Your Say

And, like the 30's, we have socialist academics and smug literati telling the rest of us that the fault lies not with our enemies, but with us. To the extent we foolishly ignore the claxtons and lessons of history, they may be correct.
