    I think my Pater is quite safe now he has had his test and joined us. But yes I would 'put him down' if he were a threat to my small people and I think he would agree with it. He is old and they...

    I am much relieved that my small people are safe but my Pater? I do not take chances when it comes to family.

    I generally agree with the Colonel on this... that the whole thing is a big storm in a teacup. Sure I took to the sea (currently Malta, heading for Pillars of Heracles and the Atlantic) because I...

    I think (and hope) that one positive of this whole virus pandemic outbreak is likely to be a form of return to rational Government - at least in the UK and hopefully in the US too. Enough of this...

    I did. 'Herd immunity' is a theory not proven. They killed 4.4 million cattle in the UK to stop BSE (mad cow disease). If 'herd immunity' does not work (it may or may not) the whole species dies. You...

    Actually we do cull the herd as with 'mad cow disease' in the UK.

    I am not saying that the Chinese are knowingly lying - though that is also possible - but that in all such things absolutely accurate statistics are nigh on impossible to gather. How do we count...

    I think the real question is why is the US case percentage higher than the Chinese? I am not saying you should trust the Chinese statistics (I certainly do not trust the Ukrainian ones, or the...

    Certainly but the US is NOT mirroring China in that case but exceeding China in the number of cases.

    Not really 'equivalent' because A. China has an extra 1bln population more than the US so the numbers of infections should be higher than the US. B. Because as you say the US is on the ascendant path...

    But if you have zero assets how can you with any prudence lend? One default of a loan and you are bankrupt.

    Not sure your argument follows... So do you mean Thucydides meant that war between Sparta and Athens was 'inevitable' as a single case but the 'historical law' that made that war 'inevitable' will...

    This goes terribly wrong at some point. You cannot lend what you do not have.

    They have 'locked down' Ukraine I am told. Even if I could get home (which I probably could via Romania) and my two weeks self quarantine I could not get a train or a flight to Kyiv to go back to...
  20. The 'Thucydides Trap' and historical determinism.

    Big subject to sum up but important (to current and past affairs) so will start at the beginning; who was Thucydides for starters?
