Hubris Maximus is a digital collage assembled during the dark days of the George W. Bush administration when the decision was made to invade Iraq. It seemed obvious to me that the bright expectations for the war's outcome were woefully unrealistic. As always, the ancient Greeks should be appreciated for their deep understanding of the frailties and follies of humanity. Hubris is as common a mistake today as it was thousands of years ago.
