Thucydides

When I was a child, I was a member of the DeMolay. In fact, I was Master Councilor for a term. After reading the above article, no one will know what that means in the world of freemasonry.

The Economist once again doesn't know enough about a given topic to do any more than to present a fifth grade social studies report. The history provided is incomplete.

For those who are reading this from the United States; there is a website called Real Clear Politics, they accumulate interesting articles printed around the world. In past years, the Economist was referred to often, now, not so much. I used to read the Economist cover to cover, now, not so much. Maybe it's me. Maybe not. At least in this article they are not preaching gun control.
