Mark Steyn on Fantasy, Reality, and the Future

        From the London Telegraph:
        There's one image of the Second World War that sums it up: in London, the morning after a night of Luftwaffe bombing, Churchill would walk through the ruins; in Berlin, Hitler never visited bombed-out areas and, just in case the driver should take a wrong turn, he drove through the streets with his car windows curtained.

        If you can't bear to pull open the curtains, chances are you're going to lose.  When it's a bet between reality and delusion, bet on reality.  What does the European political class really know of today's challenges?  We mock the Islamists for wanting to turn the clock back to the eighth century.  But, if it's a choice between eighth-century reality or 21st-century fantasy, it's not such an easy call.
