When you read Ms. Margaret MacMillan’s book, The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914 you can’t help but be stunned by how nonchalant many people were about the prospect of war and the steps to war.
Mr. Tim Cook’s review of the book for the Globe and Mail sums it up well: “Few had anticipated the Armageddon unleashed. British wartime Prime Minister David Lloyd George later wrote, “The nations slithered over the brink into the boiling cauldron of war without any trace of apprehension or dismay.””
It reminds us of the nonchalant attitude of many toward the recent Ontario election and the province’s municipal elections.
Lest we forget.
