More Thinking of Thoughts

Do Republicans think George Bush invented government? Because if not, and if you take the more accepted version of history, namely that large social structures and governments are really a product of human evolution, it’s difficult to understand how he deserves credit for the fact that Iraqis are finally forming their own government. It seems like anywhere on the map where an assemblage of humans has existed with an absence of government, a government has eventually formed.

That our troops happen to have been there at the time, struggling to keep the peace, does not mean that Bush’s policies are what led us to this pass.
