The Magic Pudding.

You can have general principles and qualifications of them, like civilised legal systems.
Or you can have a tyranny of simplicity.

That sounds like one of those bald statements you so despise.

Does not, it has a second line, makes all the difference.


History has a way of catching up with you. History can be rewritten but not remade.

the cherokee, chickasaw, seminole, creek, choctaw, ogalala, dakota, wichita, pawnee, crow, nez perce, arapaho, comanche, apache, kiowa, mandan, seneca, iroquois, pottawattamie, huron, mohican, ute,cheyenne, and osage might disagree.

The Asmo. He might do so as well.

Time will always catch up with you. History..? If you are "lucky," most of yours will be written long after your death. If "not" - it will "never" even know you existed. Such is the view from the ehights of Mount Future. The vast majority of people are just ants, and obscured by the clouds besides.

So... I don't see an argument for history having a way of catching up with people, unless they were prominent participants in "great events," and perhaps not even then.

In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.


With the doctrine of Terra Nullius, White Australians rewrote the history of an entire continent.
