(That is one way to look at it.  If the Treaty of Versailles hadn’t been so punitive, maybe post WWI Germany wouldn’t have been plunged into the depths of such a terrible depression.  Possibly avoiding the rise of a disappointed art student, who went on to wreak havoc throughout Europe in the 1930s and 1940s.  And, that’s just one glaring example.  Unless . . . that was all part of a larger, more nefarious plan, as some have asserted.  I’ve always loved history, but it can be a rather sticky subject, being that it is predominantly written by the victors.  We should try to stay open to the less official versions of it, if we want a clearer picture of what actually happened.  Don’t be cowed into thinking the word revisionism is something despicable, because it ain’t necessarily so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
