Corruption as the ultimate mover (29/08/18 06:26:49)
Reading Frankopan's Silk Roads and Harari's Sapiens have given me an entirely new view on history. Suddenly the shells fell from my eyes: History - the long lines of history with its struggles and wars:-The old history books presented them as ideological or economic conflicts or just presented the physical facts. No real analysis. Of course - a real analysis with honest words would be feeding the revolutionaries with arguments, so the (extended) cold wars prevented both the thinking and the presentation of facts that really only were signs of what we now call corruption.
Fast forward to today. I'll just share a link.
