Back in the days when the world was being explored in sailing ships, politics was a regional sport for getting rich the quickest way possible. It was
all about huge companies like the British East India, Hudson's Bay Company or the Spanish Conquistadors having a blast. I guess I was just a teenager
because I just didn't care so much because it didn't affect me.
Today, a policy one country makes can have an effect everywhere else tomorrow. Money markets can fall, economies can grow exponentially and thousands
of people can explode into violence at the drop of a cartoon in a French newspaper.
To think that we're not all connected today is kinda stuck in the days of Christopher Columbus.
On the other hand, one really good all-out world war can see the survivors being the ones who can re-invent flint knapping and discover the best woods
to use for bows and arrows.
Building another ocean going vessel like the Santa Maria might take a while longer.
And, guess who will have their fingers on that big red button? You guessed it... politicians.
