The worst examples are where war is involved. One truism I heard about it says, "In war, truth is the first casualty." For the winning side, it remains a casualty. Which brings up another truism. "History is written by the victors."

Come to that, the human condition is absurd, and so, also, is your grand metametanarrative. So there.

Are there any intelligent people at this forum? That is, aside from myself.
