Ninety-nine years ago last night, the RMS Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
One year from now, I’ll be on the surface of the ocean above the very spot, for a commemorative moment honoring all those who died. They didn’t know it, but their deaths would buy not just new shipping rules, but a new social order. Titanic was part of a cascade of triggers in the early 20th century, all of them setting society on a New Course.
