What the dead can teach us about cowardice and weakness

by Lyle Shelton

This may sound morbid, but I love reading the obituaries in the Economist magazine.

By the way, magazine is a misnomer these days as I am usually reading from a backlit piece of glass known as an iPad.

Nonetheless, reading about the recently dead is very instructive, especially from a magazine with a global perspective and an eye for history's big ideas.

If the Economist deems a synopsis of your life worth publishing, it usually means you have made a contribution to geo-politics during what has been a tumultuous period of world history.

And as Ecclesiastes teaches, there is nothing new under the sun.
