The Guns of August...
I’m thinking “Guns of August”, while it’s got a nice literary ring to it, would be a tad premature.
If they “torch the Reichstag” in August, that’s nearly three months prior to the scheduled November elections, and come early November people are likely to be expecting things to be somewhat settled-down, and are less likely to put up with delayed/cancelled elections.
I’d be more inclined to expect a festering race-war after the release of “Machete” to lead to a classic “October Surprise”.
I could be wrong.
Noumenon, This is brilliant.
Tigerized, thanks for sending me the link.
It’s telling that when I was busy being a social sciences undergrad in the mid 70s, who did we study (without any moral context)?
No one said a word about the inhumanity or immorality of their theories. And in the absence of that context, they all gained moral legitimacy.
