Journalists like to think that they’re writing the first rough draft of history, but in fact, their stories often just recycle forgotten plotlines from long-ago conflicts. In this eight-part series, Victor Davis Hanson shows how today’s headlines tend to reflect yesterday’s news, whether they concern Germany’s resurgence or America’s cultural influence or the challenge of fighting an enemy who does not play by the rules. Confucius had it right: To learn about the future, study the past.
