99 Years Ago

99YearsAgo

Per a recent summary, seen on Facebook:

The Christmas truce of 1914 has been misrepresented as an officially sanctioned exercise in good will. In fact, the fraternizing that took place between the troops in ‘no man’s land’ horrified the officers on both sides. They struggled to regain control of the situation and made sure it didn’t happen again. The troops on both sides were understanding they had no reason to fight each other and, had this not been contained, they might have realized that their real enemies were the ones sending them off to fight other working class people.

Funny how things changed once the corporatist elites on both sides began profiting from the manufacture, sale and use of poison gas, which made the class-conscious grunts of 1914 more willing to view those on the other side as worthy of death, eh?
