    Reading this I kept remembering the scene in which Brian, from The Life of Bryan, is chased by the mob on the streets of Jerusalem. A part of the mob wants to go one sandal less, others want to venerate the gourd. And the creators of the movie wanted to give a plausible explanation to how an antique genealogy mixed with some superstitious advice would lead to the moral guide of today. Through the same process, Orwell wrote a novel about the socialism he has met and the communism he had heard of.

Somehow the transparent description became a prophecy and every now and than there is some other prophet popping up to interpret the signs of the ages.

    Solid and relevant (timely) collection of quotations. I would have liked to see notes for the sources - especially for quotes drawn from speeches. It would have made this a reference rather than just a curiosity primer.
