These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he who stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. -Thomas Paine, The Crisis

…the events you relate, most of which have happened in my time, seem to me to have occurred much longer ago than they really did. The civil war of ’61 has made a great gulf between what happened before it in our century and what has happened since, or what is likely to happen hereafter. It does not seem to me as if I were living in the country in which I was born… —George Ticknor, 1869

Gnomes are an abomination. Seriously, I had a 2nd Ed. party during my University days. We had one character who played a Gnome Illusionist. He wrecked Gnomes for me FOREVER. He was soo annoying I met with the DM and planned out his death (I was an assassin) The rest of the party got wind of it and persuaded me against it. It was more him and less the Gnome he played, but I’ve hated Gnomes ever since. —Trent Oster

Not to get off on too meta of a tangent, but I tend to see history as an interplay between broad, socioeconomic factors and the specific actions of key individuals. Sometimes socioeconomic factors take the lead, like, say, the way the potato famine drove Irish migration to America in the 1840s; sometimes the two walk in lockstep, like, say the way the conditions of post-World War I Germany made the rise of fascism possible but the specific and malevoloent idiosyncracies of Hitler defined the form that it took; and sometimes it is the key individual who takes the lead and drives the ox cart of history for a while. —Mike Duncan, The History of the Rome Episode 155

You seize and distribute our treasure, you decieve our servants. You never cease to annoy us with your bands of brigands. Have I not destroyed you Greeks?

As fireworks are called in some parts. In honor of the thing, two versions of a quote, and a little blather. As is my wont from time to time, I’m rewatching that immortal Ken Burns epic, The Civil War. I’ve talked about this series before, and last year at this time, no less, and others have said a lot about it too. And I could say lots more about it, like how the first episode is perhaps the finest piece of documentary filmmaking ever done, but instead I’ll just say this: For the last 15 years or so, I’ve had The Battle Cry of Freedom stuck in my head. It’s my default humming music. Now, as to the quote: “Whence […]

Deer Materialism
By Dwip March 17, 2007 at 11:26 pm Comments (2) RSS Feed for this post

Seen in my public libraries textbook: “Most society members have been led to believe that life in society is a competetive struggle for existance and that material progress can be realized through technological and economic growth. Students of society, however, have identified a gradual paradagim shift away from these positions and a spreading pessimism. The futurist Alvin Toffler, for instance, contends that there is an assumption that moral, aesthetic, political, and environmental degredation will overwhelm society no matter the material or technological progress it enjoys.” Yeah, and you know what? When money is evil, we’re gonna cavort with some fucking deer while our robot slaves grow us free food. Yes, Halor conversation of old, we love you too.

Nothing To Say

I got nothing to say…nothing but the one thing, as the song goes. From the opening pages of Norman Cantor’s The Civilization of the Middle Ages, I quote St. Bernard of Clairvaux: “There are some who wish to learn for no other reason than that they may be looked upon as learned, which is a ridiculous vanity, … Others desire to learn that they may morally instruct others; that is love. And lastly, there are some who wish to learn that they may be themselves edified; and that is prudence.” Those expecting a real entry, well, I’ll probably talk about Oblivion or something in a time. That time is not now.

And they’re like “Oh, did you get your letter yet?” “No, but I’ll check when I get back.” And then I get back, and it’s all like “We’re sorry, but your application has been rejected.

Which isn’t to say that the Revolution didn’t need subverting, but when the whole goal of the thing is to ESCAPE monarchy, well. But it’s, you know, the French. Can’t do anything right. Marechal: Napoleon abolished the monarchy! Me: Yeah, you could sort of say he did. Except then he set himself up, which sort of, you know, defeats the purpose. Marechal: As Emperor.
