the 21st Century,,,but still,,,He is a Wizard...

Its really amazing and terrifying to realize just how savagely and prolonged England was hammered and pounded by Nazi Germany during World War Two i mean like out of about sixty days during one time period of around two months London was bombed like over 90% of those mornings days and nights...

Simple. Churchill prevailed. Hitler lost. Thus Churchill was the most important person. Stalin's ideas also lost in the 20th century although it took a lot longer.

Ok,,,you guys win,,,Churchill,,,have to admit,,,I like the guy,,,Spencer,,,

here are some more sayings,,,

Some see private enterprise as a predatory target to be shot, others as a cow to be milked, but few are those who see it as a sturdy horse pulling the wagon.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile—hoping it will eat him last.

A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.

Nancy Astor: “Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison.”
Churchill: “If I were your husband I would take it.”

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.

Churchill was more or less born into royalty,but Hitler and Stalin were not,not even close and they had to scrape and claw tooth and nail while murdering their way to the top and even being elected into power by popular vote...

Quote: Churchill was born into the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, was a charismatic politician who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer; his mother, Jennie Jerome, was an American socialite. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston_Churchill

Prior to marriage, Diana had her own coat of arms, based on a very old coat of arms of the Spencer family, which she inherited from her paternal ancestors or father. The Spencer coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The new arms also applied by her sisters too. The arms showed the coat of arms of the Spencer family, the noble family, where they came from. It also included three escallops argent of the Spencer coat of arms.

Ok

allowed that most of you have focalized on War

I'll take us down a route opposite

" Peace " and a change in our thinking , from combative racist ignorant grunts ,

to where being a free thinker became accepted instead of stigmatized as BAD

One who brought us out of that Military grey mindset

was Aldus Huxley

whose books caught on with a new generation in Hollywood during the '60's

and as we know
Hollywood sets the trends for cultural views

I can name perhaps half a dozen who were instrumental in consciousness
swaying ,,,

Timothy Leary being an asshole is off the list( he was a druggy, not a great thinker )

The mid-century changed the way people perceived

it brought about a relaxing of ridged mores and allowed space for us
to experiment with alternate ways of being and thinking .

The old Military regimental thought processing was due to die a long
over due death

and the steps we made , out into a new World that we were busy
creating

was changing the World

Aldus gave us that courage and a push .

The 20th century was a Transformational century

The Empowerment of Women began with that beginning of that Century

Tolerance

true Tolerance became REAL

and those who sought to change their way of perceiving
like Aldus

gave birth to the change .
