These would be interesting historical studies: The French Revolution, the American Civil War, the Russian Revolution, the Italian Risogimento, and the Italian Resistance in World War II. Where to start? I would start with the Russian Revolution as this arouses my interest most, the reason may be that I missed studying Russian history at High School and I have become increasingly curious about the subject over the years. That tells me something. But, yes, a bit of history never hurts, something to read, study even, and learn from…when one is able to.
But no one needs to tell him that. It is pretty self-evident. Pretty self-evident, you say? Come off it. It’s hardly obvious. Yes, it is, obvious! Nah, it’s not, but what I am getting at is the current state of academic inquiry into almost everything…It’s hardly obvious what they are getting at. Twenty theories for almost anything, eh.
