The human has not changed at all in the past 70 years, evolutionarily(sp). The things that made relationships work back then will still do the trick today, and will 100 years from now, barring complete social breakdown via internet and text messaging.
really did it for me. I never realized how many problems we actually had in the first years of this country. The whitewashed version of early American history we get in school always presents it as a small war, where we fought valiantly and repelled the British quickly. It also portrays G.W. as this ultimate hero. He didn't even want the job!
It takes us the better part of 2 decades to write our constitution and we expect Iraq to already be a fully functioning democracy by now?
