At the siege of Vienna in 1683 Islam seemed poised to overrun Christian Europe.We are in a new phase of a very old war.
Yeah, that's a good laugh.
Well, I guess philosophers in politics is almost as odd as philosophers in football. I cannot help but thinking of Monty Python's The Philosophers' Football Match.I love the part when the Germans are arguing with the referee to have the goal overruled: Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.
This wonderfully nit-picky comment at Wikipedia adds to the humour:"According to the available camera angles, unless some German defender(s) were inexplicably loitering around the corner flag(s), Marx was right and the Greek goal should have been ruled off-side."
