As I read history things become relatively simple

As I read history things become relatively simple.
The more nations and other principalities 
become involved in their various endeavors the more obfuscation there is
The more conflict the more alternative versions
When things become messy and violent 
They take on a meaning that is in itself probably independent of the event
An assassination may appear to be a cause of war
And so forth
But truth is a continual casualty
  Our world is lucky. as Kurt Vonnegut once told me as we walked down Third Avenue 
(He was a board member of the Schweitzer Center when I directed it), 
We do not just all fight each other all the time
