Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

In WW2, the Allies, especially the normally restrained British, were attempting to kill as many German civilians as possible. This was the crux of Air Marshal Harris' bombing campaign. The firebombing of Hamburg and Dresden, let alone the carpet bombing of everything we could think of was part of th...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

John,

I've started to take a look at the draft and it has wonderful content. I wrote a 400 page book once, so I know how hard these are to create (and then edit).

** 24-Mar-2019 Religious ferver Many people blame war on religion -- that religious fervor causes war. Christopher Hitchens, whom I wrote about several times, made a very compelling argument, claiming that if religion could be abolished, then war would be abolished. Sorry to have not explained myse...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

John, I think you are getting at a core truth. The fanatics, like Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and so on, view their ideology as a religion. They believe it is "perfect", and beyond dispute. So far beyond dispute that when anything happens to show that it might not be perfect, then the pract...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

I remember reading about how shortly after Mao took over China, families were ordered to build and operate small scale iron foundries. They were then supposed to produce iron. They tried, but it was low quality crap. So to "produce iron" they started just melting down their cooking and far...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

Tom,

Many of these articles are written with an almost over the top pro-Russian slant. I think it is important to sift through, find facts, and dismiss the propaganda.

Re: 24-Dec-18 World View -- Generational Dynamics analysis of the troop withdrawal from Syria

John, I think you contribute a lot, and I hope that you would stick around as long as you can contribute. I would hope that you would consider relocation as a viable alternative. Shreveport and Lubbock are both very nice places. You can get a decent apartment in the downtown district in either place...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

Getting back to current events, I think a worrisome development that is not getting much notice are Putin's efforts to "merge" Russia with Belarus. I think that he may be close to forcing the issue (a financial crisis would allow him to "seal the deal"). This would give him an op...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

This is roughly what I think will happen with WW III. The next world war will utterly destroy the socialist states. They will no longer be able to provide for their citizens. And the people do not have the social structures to compensate for this. This will lead to a post WW III period for Europe t...
