Reader comment on item: Lee Harvey Oswald's Malign Legacy

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Nov 22, 2007 at 10:43

As Hegel, Spengler and Toynbee would attest to, the ideas and ideals that people live by are the key component of the life-span of a society (and how healthy it is). I take issue because at times it is the most important face of history, but there are other faces of history detailed by Max Dimont in "Jews, God & History" that also rise to the top and be "first among equals". When more than a casual examination of the history of liberalism is examined, the fecundity of Simone de Beauvoir, Charles Darwin, John Dewey, et al. - we see plenty of mules produced. Which, by the way, cannot avoid the conclusion that mules are sterile.
