At March Of Times blog our mission is to examine historical phenomena, events, and people who have indelibly shaped our world, for better or worse.
We aim to examine "truth" from different perspectives. We acknowledge the validity of various schools of thought, and will often compare and contrast events and lives from these different mindsets.
Often you will enjoy our writing. Sometimes you will disagree with us. But our hope is that you will always come away more educated and inspired, moving further along in your journey towards ultimate enlightenment.
