Many times I feel that if one wishes to understand political reality the two essential tools are history and evolutionary biology. This is not the time to go into longwinded explanations as to why I hold such apparently bizarre opinions, but rather simply to introduce a wonderful essay by Matti Friedman. Though nothing he said came as a total surprise it certainly helped me clear old ideological and Eurocentric cobwebs from my eyes. That is the task of all good history.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did. You will find it here.
