01/25/2005: Those who do not learn from history
Today's "must read" blog post comes from Jason Kuznicki at Positive Liberty. Kuznicki's post begins,
Once upon a time, there was a country that loved democracy.
It was also the greatest country on earth. The world loved and respected the country's scientists, writers, artists, and musicians. Its armies were unquestionably the strongest.
And as I said, it loved democracy.
It loved democracy so much that it was willing to go to war so that democracy might spread. What's more, the country pointed out, the enemies in this war had attacked us first. And the country was entirely correct to say so.
Go read the whole thing for the punchline.
