this kind of goes back to our discussion on period documents.  i love to look at this stuff and try to put in in context with current events and technology.  it's also kind of interesting to take current events and try to see how they would have been handled or exposed in the past.

not so ancient history for some of us  Wink

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

History has been my passion during my youth. Drinking and drinking books. Countries, phylosophers explaining an universal meaning about the leadership (the empire, so heavy) like Plato or Nietzsche, and finally the man, being hero or being Homer Simpson, always man.

"being hero or being Homer Simpson," Hi, Don Quixote and Sancho again... Wink

Well, I enjoy the "mythologic" history of America, when the Spanish were guided by Marco Polo ideas, Catay and Cypango, and the Knight errants literature, and they thought that California was the famous island populated only by young girls...

Spain was there... cool

By the way, I have studied the modern history of USA too, of course    Smiley
