I have always been astonished by the wisdom and compassion displayed by the allied nations after World War II. For a time it seemed the world learned the message of reaping what you sow.
World War II was directly caused by the oppressive taxes imposed upon Germany in order to recoup the financial cost of World War I. This led to the rise of Hitler, World War II, and the death and murder of millions. Hate grows Hate!
After World War II jointly the world rebuilt both Japan and Germany. This act of wisdom and compassion lead to the healing of the world. Germany and Japan are our friend and economic partners. The EU is proof of the change and healing of Europe. Love grows Love!
We can learn from history.
