I think over the last 30-40 years there's been a tendency to rush history and over-analyze individual events for their historical value. This is a consequence of the 24-hour ubiquitous news cycle. No wonder we're all having nervous breakdowns, thinking the world could end at any moment. Lately, when people say the world could end, my silent rejoinder is No such luck.
