History teaches us so many valuable lessons. For example, in World War II, many small twists of fate could have changed the entire course of events and caused unimaginable suffering. Case in point, early in the war, the Germans had almost the entire British army trapped on the beach of Dunkirk. Hitler could have easily crushed the British, but instead he turned his attention towards Paris, allowing the British to mount a heroic rescue. Had Britain been defeated, Germany could have easily taken all of Europe and prevented the U.S. from having a base to counterattack. Consider the Battle of the Bulge, where Hitler’s counterattack threatened to undo all the gains of D-Day. Had it not been for a sudden change in weather conditions, Patton’s 3rd Army may not have been able to win the battle, allowing Hitler to stay in power possibly long enough for Germany to build a nuclear weapon. Imagine Nazis with a nuke! How about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Just by chance, multiple aircraft carriers were out on exercise and therefore not part of the carnage. Had they been destroyed, the West Coast of the continental U.S. would have been vulnerable to attack. The examples are endless of where you can say “we were lucky,” but maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t luck. Maybe things happen for a reason.
How does this relate to today? I’m not sure yet. Maybe the close election will put pressure on those in power to put in audit & verification procedures so voter fraud and “mistakes” like in 2020 never happen again. Imagine Ruth Bader Ginsburg, rest in peace, had died just a couple months later and just 1-2 more Senate seat had gone to Democrats. Would the U.S. have a democracy in a few years? Maybe the lessons of Trump Derangement Syndrome were designed to teach the majority of the country about the bias & corruption of mainstream media and Big Tech before their power got out of control? Maybe Covid-19 was designed to teach the dangers of putting too much dictator-like control in the hands of power-hungry socialist governors?
Whatever lessons we’re being taught, history shows the best of times are usually preceded by the worst of times. Think Roaring 20s after World War I. Think the Happy Days of the 50s after the Great Depression & World War II. Think Reagan Revolution of the 80s after the Carter stagflation, Watergate, and Vietnam in the 70s.
And without the bad times, would we even appreciate the good times? After Covid, imagine how great it will be to go to a concert, sporting event, or fair. Imagine how much you’ll appreciate just being able to go to the store, work, go to school, or fly on a plane without having to wear a damn mask.
So relax and keep your chin up. Tell your governors to f**k off, go be with your families, and give thanks for all the great things in your life!
