Woden's Day

Down through history there have been many charismatic leaders of kingdoms, nations and empires. Have you ever wondered what role "timing" plays in leaders' perceived success or failure? Take Adolf Hitler. If we could pluck him from history and move his birthdate and formative years backward or forward in time would he always turn out to be an evil dictator, every single time? Would he still have been a leader or would he have been an ordinary man? In another age would he have helped humanity or would he have been tossed in an asylum and forever forgotten? Would a different person have replaced him in his particular place in time and if so would the Holocaust and WW2 have happened anyway... And if not, what terrible events might have instead taken place?

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
