    History has certainly taught us the truth in this saying and sadly continues to do so.

      Yes, I believe history has. We can talk ourselves into thinking and believing what we say is right or any circumstances, but that doesn’t make us or it right.

      It simply continues to make us wrong, no matter how many of us believe or say we’re right. Wrong is wrong.

    It’s usually the majority that gives us conflict and politics based on selfish ends. Brad is correct, history is evidence of so many wrongs.

    People will always deliver poison around the world, but that doesn’t mean we have to drink it.

      Thanks Tim. Yes, quite. There is definitely that edge to it. People tend to do things for their own selfish gain instead of thinking about and putting themselves in another person’s shoes.

      Politicians tend to think (or their advisors tend to think) they know what we need, and agree some of their thinking isn’t quite on the mark.
