Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Reads About Power

Nobody Reads

While in his sixties, Henry Adams wrote this about the changes in history that he, as an historian, had come to conclusions about.

Ones’ belief had fattened on impossibilities. Before the boy was six years old, he had seen four impossibilities made actual –the ocean-steamer, the railway, the electric telegraph, and the Daguerreotype, nor could he ever learn which of the four had most hurried others to come.

During a million or two of years, every generation in turn had toiled with endless agony to attain and apply power, all the while betraying the deepest alarm and horror at the power they created. 

Nobody Wonders what Henry would think about bio-weaponizing a virus?
