One hundredth anniversary

100 years ago today, the aristocratic elite persuaded tens of thousands of the poorer classes, after whipping them up into a supposedly patriotic xenophobic fury, to do their bit for the country and put their heads above the parapet, resulting in untold damage to the lives of thousands of ordinary people and their families. All in the name of a spat within the governing classes.

Thank goodness nothing like that could happen today!
