Compare this 4T to others
#12
(05-05-2019, 09:59 PM)sbarrera Wrote: The classic example from ancient history is the Peloponessian War which ended Greece's Golden Age. As Thucydides described it, the ancient codes of religion and honor were abandoned and the Hellenes went at each other with unrestrained violence. So soon after the glorious defeat of Persia, Greek civilization self-destructed. The same could be said to have happened with the European nations in the World Wars.

Good point. Hubris, overreach and exhaustion tend to create more harm than true military defeat.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
