A British View of American History……….

Whilst researching ways in which Moonbeam and I could devise a new world order I stumbled upon an interesting critique of the US political system written  by Frank Prochaska, a British historian from Oxford.

He quotes historian Henry Adams, grandson and great-grandson of two American presidents, who said that politics is “the systematic organisation of hatreds”.    Sums up the 21st century doesn’t it.

Once again I apologise for my lack of linking skills.  If anyone knows how to effect a link on WordPress using the Quintus theme please let this cat know.

It’s cold today so it’s back to thinking mode in the hot water cupboard……
