A Question to Keep You Occupied, 8/27/12
Because I have lots to do today but don’t want you bored.
You have the ability to, for one night, reanimate any two historical personages (“historical” = “not currently alive”) and have them discuss/debate a topic of your own choosing. Which two historical personages do you choose, and what subject do you have them discuss/debate?
My choice: Richard the Lionheart and Saladin, on the topic of what is, and how to engage in, a just war.
(And please, do give it some thought and try to avoid the usual suspects; the world doesn’t need three dozen people clamoring for a debate between Jesus and Ayn Rand on any topic, as an obvious example. I thank you in advance.)
