  1. Reading Colm Toibin’s excellent historical novel, The Magician, which follows the life of Thomas Mann, it is interesting how he drastically under-rates the threat posed by Hitler’s emergence, even while viewing developments from the vantage point of Munich.
    Perhaps a book has already been written about this phenomenon; however, the catastrophes of the last century or so appear to have been – notwithstanding a few notable outliers – ‘under-predicted’ to a very significant extent.
    And this under-predicting is itself a contributor to the unfolding of the shocking events.


  2. Overstates? What will the US be like if Trump or his avatar wins in November 2024?
