On Geology and Politics

George Will’s op-ed in the WaPo is on the connection between geology and politics. He reflects on the dissappearance of the island of Krakatoa in 1883. Pretty good.

I wonder what else Will may have been reading:

"[T]he natural cataclysms appear [to the classics] as a manifestation of the beneficence of nature. Machiavelli himself expresses this opinion of the natural cataclysms which has been rendered incredible by the experiences of the last centuries."

Thoughts on Machiavelli, p. 299
