Max is ready to move on – not that he has said all he has to say about World War One and the Guilt of it – to say nothing of the impact of the times on the future of Europe, the U.S, and the World – what happened to the League of Nations? Etc., etc., etc.
Two topics are next up – First, Max’s next novel, COUNT, currently in the final stages of production at Tate Publishing. It is timely because the topic of civil rights is always timely, but also because the country is currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech.
The second topic is China, also much in the 2013 news – Max has traced the origin of the Chinese Communist takeover in earlier blogs which he is thinking of reposting. Current developments in the great Middle Kingdom are so different from what anyone expected when Mao Tse Tung triumphed in 1949 that it is time to take another look and see if any of it makes any sense.
