Historical Perspective

When someone tells you that political campagins are nastier now than they’ve ever been before, just laugh. They need some historical perspective:

You should also laugh if anyone talks about “the good old days” or suggests things are worse now than ever before, or that the world is getting worse and worse.

Again, a little knowledge of history is a wonderful antidote.
