    Ever read that?:

    - In 1984, American historian Barbara Tuchman published "The March of Folly, from Troy to Vietnam", describing how throughout history governments made the most stupid mistakes, almost knowingly, blind to warnings, tell-tale signs that they were wrong,
    yet with arrogance and short term personal gain on their agenda, they created the exact opposite of what they intended to do...

    Shouldn't the final 21st-c. chapter of that book be entitled?:

    - Headlong rush to the abyss
