within the sweep of history..................

 One basic rule I try to follow when I write about current affairs is to remember that I do not live in extraordinary times.  We live within the sweep of history, not outside it, and it's our nature as conscious beings to assume that our times must be special because we live in them.  But better to remember that today's crises will be little remembered.
