I have read a lot of history books in my life, and several times I have threatened not to read any in my 'next life.' The reason for this is clearer right now than ever.
For instance, when you read about diplomacy in 1914, just before World War I, or 1939, just before World War II, you see the historian trying to come up with rational explanations for the decisions of the political class. That is a mistake.
What does reason have to do with it? Look at the decisions of NATO today. It's as if insanity were a virus infecting one national leader after another.
When are we going to start calling these leaders what they really are: economic terrorists?, and then treat them as we treat other kinds of terrorists.
This would be more useful than calling people 'domestic terrorists' just because they disagree with you.
