Proves The Rule, I Guess...

If you want comments on your site, post something wrong.

Anyway, to those who haven't visited before: Welcome, and yes, I know that WWI was basically a family feud among Queen Victoria's grandchildren, and that The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact would be a good name for a rock band.

Ancient Chinese history I'm less reliable on, so if you want to take up a discussion of the Yellow Turban Rebellion in my comments, go right ahead.

1 Sorry. I always hated it when people did that to me, and here I am doing it to you.

Wikipedia says the Yellow Turban Rebellion was: "agrarian crisis, in which famine forced many farmers and former military settlers in the north to seek employment in the south, where large landowners exploited the labor surplus to amass large fortunes."  Seems as though nothing changes over the centuries as we see nowaday with current worldwide droughts.

 

Thanks for putting this rebellion out cause I had never heard about it.  Might also want to read A Time To Stand ( booksbyoliver.com ) cause it's more current today as people continue to fight tyranny.  I recommend it.

3 Steven - no problem, I don't mind people correcting me as long as the point is (a) salient, (b) reasonably polite, and (c) hasn't been made twelve times already.
OhioRiver - as my 8th grade history teacher liked to say, Those who do not study history are going to be back in my class again next year.

In the spirit of giving...

How about the Taiping Rebellion?  A family feud of almost divine levels.
