Victor Hanson's latest piece ends this way:
"We are not at the end of history, but rather at its new beginning. All the old truths — conventional warfare, the Atlantic alliance, petroleum-based affluence, conventional political debate, etiquette, principled disagreement, and the old populist Democratic party are coming under question. And the only thing that is clear from what will follow is that it will all be loud, messy, full of surprises — and occasionally quite scary."
The entire piece is worth reading. We may be at a historical turning point, and very likely we are condemned to live in "interesting times."
