bookshelves: history, seafaring

Butler deals with the character of the times and explains how societal hubris and a belief in the infallibility of modern invention led to the tragic death of 1,500 people. He does not attempt to exonerate or blame anyone individual, so the myths are dispelled and the facts laid bare. God will not be mocked.

The tragedy was self inflicted. Self deception is so powerful that only after events play out, hindsight shows that the end of the story was, all along, inevitable.
