Applying media methods of talking about Russian Revolution to Luther and the Reformation
Media analysis of the Russian Revolution is hardly getting beyond the idea that a) it happened b) some bad stuff happened later c) QED the RR was bad. d) PS Lenin had bad breath. And shaved his beard off.
I think we should apply this method to some other areas of history. How about Luther and the Reformation? a) it happened b) some bad stuff happened later (wars, famine, persecution, tyrannical regimes) c)QED it was bad. d) sorted. e) PS Luther talked a lot about farting.
