Marxism For Dummies 13

Mosaic tablets are not monoliths. It all depends (despair, or last best hope?) whatever end of Tocqueville’s telescope you happen to be viewing. One man’s myths are gospels to another. Freedom fighters, or filthy terrorists? A vexing ton of evidence encumbers Lexington. Our certain self-assertion might indict us. A foreign army’s trampling our soil, despoiling farms and cottages at will? We’re justified (according, then, to Hoyle) in using violence? It’s never quite as simple as they say, those righteous writers. Is Dien Bien Phu so far from Bunker Hill?

That telescope, exactly. This, exactly: "Is Dien Bien Phu so far from Bunker Hill?" We aren't the only ones thinking like this, so why oh why does it never end? l'histoire se répète.
