"We have done something historic"

A great many German and French wannabees did historic stuff in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the name of European 'integration' but historic isn't always good

Napoleon made history. So did Hitler, and a few others. Doing something historic usually means doing something bad. The world gets better as the cumulation of minor, non historic, improvements- the grand plans just get in the way.
