    Xbox Hitler is not as scary as Nintendo Hitler.

    He can find jews hiding behind walls simply by headbutting the wall!

    What ability you have to connect, relate and represent. Brilliant. Your blog’s a joy! Authentic and oozing with simplicity.

    Perhaps, but questionable, especially with regard to leaders. After every genocide you hear hear, “Never again.” Good leadership would mean that we never hear it again. Hero are good, but they placate the desire for leadership.

    Hopefully a new generation of heros will soon arise. We need them.

    Well, maybe I’ll just have to get out my spandex. That usually calms things down.

    Just want to say I’ve recently discovered your blog thanks to the recommendation from the “evolving ideas” blog. And what a treat it was to see life and the world so succinctly captured in your cool diagrams! Keep up the great work :)

    Let’s pray for calm times where heroes are not necessary.

    Are you saying WWII was calm?

    I’d say the causation clearly goes in one direction-extraordinary times create heroes out of the ordinary.

    No, you muppet: if course WW2 was not calm, I think the point is it had real heroes defeating a real Hitler. Unlike the calmer present, which has fewer heroes. (And, as I read it, lots of people busy defeating Xbox baddies and paying no attention to the real ones.)

    Sorry, that sounded a bit harsher than I intended – should point out that where I come from, ‘muppet’ is an *affectionate* term of abuse…

    “Unlike the calmer present, which has fewer heroes.”

    No, it has MORE heroes — more heroes who are alive. The calmer the era, the more heroes are doing things that don’t involve being dead.
