    Hi Lawrence DeBivort -

    >I've got to pick up Wilson's book. It sounds pretty interesting.

    It's largely environmental, but, that's a real terrorism that we're
    hardly seeing.

    And, thanks for the history lesson. I'm watching a series this month on
    the local PBS satellite station about WWII. Wars continue to amaze me, on
    all sides.

    Probably the root. Maybe also, the root of the 'hiddenness' of the
    banking system.

    But I'm not sure there are any non-criminal governments, just as there
    probably aren't any non-criminal rich bastards. But criminality is also
    relative. As is life, all things considered.

    >Hmmmmm... how about Egypt/Nasser nationalizing the Suez Canal?

    I suppose there was no real benefit to them? No pressure from other
    nations? Wasn't Nasser a fashion plate of a leader?

    >The republic of Venice deciding (by a single vote) to NOT move their capital
    >to Constantinople?

    You see my ignorance here- Venice is a republic? I thought it was a
    waterlogged city in Italy.

    The only international cooperative policy of intelligent relations I am
    aware of is Antarctica.
