For Sunday I thought you might enjoy the finding out how the writer of Proverbs received wisdom. (Solomon is the writer of Proverbs. Solomon is the 2nd son of King David and the woman Bathsheba whose husband David had slain in war. The first son died.) It is a single chapter: http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/1-kings/3-audio.html
Solomon also wrote Ecclesiastes which contains the words in the song Turn, Turn, Turn. (Audio if you would like to hear it: http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/ecclesiastes/3-audio.html ):
Ecc 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born , and a time to die ; a time to plant , and a time to pluck up that which is planted ; 3 A time to kill , and a time to heal ; a time to break down , and a time to build up ; 4 A time to weep , and a time to laugh ; a time to mourn , and a time to dance ; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together ; a time to embrace , and a time to refrain from embracing ; 6 A time to get , and a time to lose ; a time to keep , and a time to cast away ; 7 A time to rend , and a time to sew ; a time to keep silence , and a time to speak ; 8 A time to love , and a time to hate ; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Alan Watt talks a lot about the Royal Institute of International Affairs Great Britain, and the Council of Foreign Relations as being the power brokers steering world affairs and quotes Carroll Quigley https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carroll_Quigley , Tragedy and Hope, alot and says those brokers have 50 year business plans just like companies and corporations have business plans.
I found this information regarding that book in the text on that page:
"Millions of copies of these books came into print, and the conservative movement changed forever.
Copies of Tragedy and Hope began disappearing from library shelves.
A pirate edition was printed.
Quigley came to believe that his publisher Macmillan had suppressed his book.
Dr. Gary North, the esteemed economic commentator and historian has an interesting discussion of these curious facts in the chapter, "Maverick 'Insider' Historians," in his book, Conspiracy: A Biblical View, available on-line."
I am just throwing this stuff out there, not arguing. Do you think that the information by Carroll Q. is a False Front/Trap? I do not know anything about it.
I will finish reply later, you do not need to reply to this. I am just putting down a couple of rough thoughts. If I understand you right you are saying that the Carroll Quigley view of history is a false view.
