Quote of the Month

Writes Dr. Jonathan M. Kolkey:

Today it’s a cardinal article of faith that the America colonists were completely justified revolting against King George III and British colonial rule. However, the beauty of comparative history is that it allows us to look at this episode in broader perspective so that the alleged uniqueness of events often fade as larger patterns are identified. In fact, the American Revolution looks a great deal less wholesome – indeed rather unnecessary – upon sober reflection.
