1653, 1889, 1893, 1902
1653, Oliver Cromwell dissolved the English Parliament, in order to rule by decree. As Napoleon did. As Putin has effectively done in Moscow. As some Americans are already suggesting Trump will create a war or emergency of some kind, to allow him to postpone the election at the end of his 2nd term, in order to do more or less the same. We shall see.
1902: Pierre and Marie Curie isolated radium. Marie also said that:
"Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less."
Does that valiant piece of idealism apply to any, some, all, or none of the above?
