My extremely angry history teacher, quoting his extremely angry grandfather.
I quote this all the time. I feel like the Pitt Rivers museum should have it in metre-high letters on the wall. And I say it with a certain warmth. You’ve gotta have a little bit of horrified admiration for a nation state with such audaciously rapacious foreign policy. And then you gotta nail both their hands to the table where you can see ‘em and empty out their pockets.
