"We have squandered our resources, both the natural and the human, and we are finding that moving towards a world of inescapable continual war and forever debt is the only option left to a nation bankrupt both in its spirit and in its moral core, and so has become a nation without a foundation and with no solid place to stand."

"All is well that starts well, and the United States did not start well. The end does not justify the means for those suffering injustice and the perfect is not the enemy of the good. It is the source from which goodness flows, not the other way around. This nation was founded on conquest and the theories of supremacy and dominion, might makes right and an unusually strong ability these days of being able to accept mediocrity and failure, even when faced with the obvious results of that settlement. Therefore to hold up the ideal without the works, hypocrisy and out-right deceit have become so prevalent that like that famously invisible forest we heard about, we generally can’t even see those things we so abhor in theory."

The first global city

High in the Andes, Potosí supplied the world with silver, and in return reaped goods and peoples from Burma to Baghdad


Pious or otherwise, wealthy women clicked Potosí’s cobbled streets in silver-heeled platform shoes, their gold earrings, chokers and bracelets studded with Indian diamonds and Burmese rubies.

HISTORY'S MYSTERIES —
