    I wondered what the sign in Paris meant and how it applied to history.

    How often in history does "one train may be hiding another one"?

    Naziism in World War II was just hiding an even greater conflict of Communism over the next 40 years.

    War with Mexico was hiding the upcoming Civil War.

    Agincourt seemed a great victory for good King Hank, but just clouded the loss that was coming with Henry 6.

    Other applications?

    Roe v Wade and the sale of infant body parts (which is current on-going history. I'll be glad when it becomes part of the past).

    Cold War against Communism distracted us from the rise of Islamic terrorism.

    Boy, those are BOTH excellent examples.

    Thought of another. The Revolution/Articles of Confederation (state's rights) was hiding the 2nd Revolution/Constitution (federalism) that hijacks the high moral principles of 1776.

    Ever wonder what the Patriot Act is hiding us from? There IS another train coming . .

    the call for Unity in the 1860's hid the rise of a federalist juggarnaut
