Since I have written most of this stuff as stream of consciousness, my recollections of history can be a little flawed. I DO THINK facts matter, so after doing a little research I have made a couple of adjustments to the essay.

  1. The Allies concentrated on Hitler to PREVENT him gaining access to Middle East oil and
  2. 2. Robert Goddard invented the “liquid-fueled” rocket.

I do think I have a good argument here and these are tangential points to the main thrust, so I adjusted them based upon the inaccuracies you noted. I appreciate you taking the time to point them out and help make my argument here more compelling.

Thanks,
