A Debate Too Far

Transitions Online: A Debate Too Far

Included in this rather ambiguous article are several reasons why I studied history, specifically WWII history, all those years ago. And yet it doesn't matter if the war anniversary was 60 years ago (VE) or 30 (VN), no one seems to have learned any lessons about war today (IQ). What will historians write about us (US)?

  1. God as 'arbiter of history'

    Leave it to our new German (read: ex-Nazi) pope to make this announcement: God is the 'arbiter [make free] of history': He urged Catholics to look for and recognize what he called "hidden divine interventions in history." Like when He saved millions of his Chosen People from the Nazi crematoria. IOW: don't hold your breath.
