Well I have to say that my view on history is similar, although I was never able to express it as clearly as you have, Mr. Creech.

I have adored history the moment I had to take it as a subject in primary school. But on the other hand, it could be argued that my teacher taught history so well that he made me fall in love with it.

Yes, history is a theatre, and as a former stage actor myself, it is amazing when you combine the two. Watching plays dating back from the 1600s with the elaborate costumes and the speech variations that take you back to Shakespearean times. That's what I call magic.

I had never thought of gratitude in this manner. I always believed that gratitude was a feeling expressed when you take something or when something is given to you. However, after you wrote this article, I can honestly say that I agree with the fact that gratitude expressed when we give something away is the "superior" form of this emotion if I may say so.

I honestly believe that you said everything that had to be said about these individuals. Unfortunately, they are far from being the only ones with this level of sociopathy – I might be exaggerating but that is how I look at them.

People who praise them only do so because they are rich; famous; and have achieved "success", or what success means to them.

No one knows how Steve Jobs or Musk treat their employees, and frankly no one cares.

I think that the project to Mars is completely and utterly irrational. Why don't we just sort ourselves out on Earth before moving to another planet? Why go and destroy Mars? Why not improve ourselves? Whatever the answer is, it's with God now.
