The Danger of Predictions

 One thing I have gleaned from a study of history is that horrible mistakes can be made by assuming that other groups will react in a specific way. Some decisions from World War II are especially interesting:

  • Mussolini's decision to declare war on Britain and France.
  • Hitler's decision to declare war on the United States.
  • Japan's decision to attack Pearl Harbor.
