What would you do if you could travel back in time to before that last world war?Imagine you’re a time traveller and you go back to pre-World War II times Seeing that hindsight is 20-20 you would know of the terrible war that is a brewing. The people back then wouldn’t know this, they would just be seeing things from a currents events standpoint. The events of the day could now be set in the context of history but only as they are unfolding.How would you try to warn the people of that time what is to transpire?How would you try to take the events of the day and put them in historic contextThere are certain immutable laws of human behaviour just as their are certain immutable law of physics Tyrants will act as tyrants no mater the age or epoch – they will Lie, cheat steal and oppress their people to maintain their death grip on power.As a time traveller you would know what is to happened and you could try to warn people of the cataclysm that is about to befall them. Some may actually listen to you but most will not, and you’ll be lucky if you don’t locked up in the clink in a straight jacket in a padded cell.You could try to point out how Hitler is incrementally getting worse and worse, you could point out that while he was elected he is now cementing his place as the leader with bribes of cash and other valuables stolen from others.You could try to point out how while he attained political office within the confines of the law of the land he is now flouting that law and using it to solidify his power base while using the same set of laws against his political opponents.Now, imagine that you are a time traveller from the future, and knowing how things played out before WWII how would you try to convince people of today to pull their heads out of their a… out of the sand and look at events of today in light of the event before WWII?
