My regulars know that I am somewhat of a history wonk….that I enjoy dropping some knowledge on my regulars whenever I find something that I think they will appreciate
I found a new site thanx for a friend of IST, w1nt3l, from his Twitter account…..it is an excellent piece with historic perspective so I had to press it here on IST…..
When republican ideology backfires…
In high school, I skipped out on physics to study history and specialised as an art student for two years. I then did history courses for another two years, while obtaining my art degree in college.
Needless to say, I learned a lot about how the world used to work, and how it still works today. To do this, we covered the political dealings of countries over the millennia; and of all the countries we studied, America has to be one of the most interesting.
To be honest, this hasn’t always been for good reasons. More often than not, America and other World Powers are painted as villains in a never-ending, always-unfolding story of life, lies, and politics.
