An Interesting Documentary

This is a documentary on the causes of the Great War, made during the late 1990s when the Balkans were once again in conflict.

I find it fascinating to think of the wars of the 20th century in the context of one long series of wars that is just now reaching its final conclusion.  I’ve seen two ends of a very long cycle where practically every idea has been challenged and eliminated, and none of them have proven invulnerable.  It’s exciting, but it’s also terrifying because the world has not finished heaving yet.
