#Countdown to Anzac Day: So who pulled the trigger that started the war?

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 26 minutes ago
So today I had planned to write about the origins of the war that ended peace – ‘'the "seminal catastrophe" of modern times and the calamity from which all other calamities sprang” -- the war that killed 16 millions and destroyed the health, wealth and material well-being of millions more – that ended empires four empires, bankrupted another, and sowed the seeds for a century of totalitarianism – that destroyed for all time “the pre-World War One world, the last afterglow of the most radiant cultural atmosphere in human history.”* But I’ve decided that I won’t. I might do that ne... more »

How to save refugees from drowning? Recolonialization

The reason goes back to a conference in Evian, France way back in 1938. Millions of Jews were desperate to get out of Germany. I knew two of them. Bernard and E...more »
