Came across a copy of the above “Horrible History” on the Frightful First World War. And indeed it was horrible and even now there is no settled theory on how it ever happened, although there is a near consensus that it never ought to have. But there on the back was this.
The Frightful First World War tells you all the horrors and hardships of the war that was meant to last four months … but ground on for four grim years.
We are now in the midst of the “Frightful Covid Pandemic” that will one day be part of history, but not until we can get our political leaders to stop the War on Covid and let us get back to peacetime.
The really sad thing is how nothing seems to change, but in particular the idiocies among our political “leaders” who lead us into these mass insanities. Beginning with “two weeks to flatten the curve” how much longer is this going to go on?
