BRADLEY R. GITZ: 100 years after disaster

By Bradley R. Gitz

This article was published March 12, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

The year 2018 represents the 100th anniversary of the end of perhaps the worst calamity to visit mankind--the Great War (we didn't call it World War I until we had a second that the consequences of the first did so much to cause).

Congratulations on writing a piece that is not focused on race baiting.

Boltar,

My thoughts exactly. He probably is starting to realize that he could lose his job at Lyon if he keeps it up.

With a thoughtful thought on Steven Pinker, perhaps BRG had a lucid moment by following up with "progress" derived from the Enlightenment- something he usually is aginnn!

The divine right of kings was replaced by the divine right of nations to be ruled by those who were just as convinced they were divine kings, in fact one was a g-d.

I would also note that his leaving out of the role of the church established, they say, by the deity who created his own mother , in the rise of fascism as a response to the bolsheviks was a glaring error. I will submit that the first treaty of both the reich and il duce was with the vatican- another sad chapter in its history of mammals who think they are special.

Gitz, you wrote a very nice piece today. Quite historically accurate in that the end of the Great War practically made WW2 predetermined. Spend more time writing on political history like this and I will put you back in my "fun to read" category. Gold star for today.

As part of the treaty, Germany could not have troops on the other side of the river.

In a documentary I listened to it stated around late 1930's Hitler deliberately sent troops across the river and gave them orders to set up camp so France would notice.
If France took action, they were to retreat immediately and NOT engage French troops.

France observed and did NOTHING !

It was stated Adolph Hitler smiled and said..........." ah, ha "

Boltar, I never observed " race baiting" in Gitz's columns.

The last real race baiting was from a hate group Black Lives Matter.
