Well it’s a thought…
….Pastor Manning says it best
I love this guy.
We will live in a worl?
He makes me laugh every single time. Not an easy thing to do…..
Thanks for not citing Preston Manning who has a case of Bendii Syndrome.
He’s long gone.
Thanks hadn’t seen that before. I’d read Chromium Blue, Brave New World and have an mp3 of his 1962 Berkeley speech from the pre-youtube days kicking around.
I haven’t read Brave New World. Maybe I should.
some say BNW more accurate predictions than 1984 (?)
He seems reasonable in this vid. I think I’ll read it for sure.
The things he’s speaking of have only become more pronounced since 1958.
Communism has largely gone, but it’s been replaced by Islam + political correctness.
Even worse, the elites won’t admit it.
Look how Obama was sold as a candidate. Now the same things are happening with Hillary.
As an ass kicking name taking senior you could do worse than taking a gander at things from the Huxley vantage.
I mean that in the best possible way, of course.
It’s not the most uplifting story if you’re feeling blue. Just fair warning.
Good point. Some books I start are too depressing to finish. One by Primo Levi I simply couldn’t read.
Another one was the highly recommended “Bloodlands”, about fighting in Eastern Europe during WW II.
It was just unreal. I quit after two chapters.
They were historical and true stories, makes a difference.
Bloodlands was an important work! And so is keeping oneself from wanting to jump off a bridge! I took a course once that was entirely about the Holocaust and Holodomor. Nonstop mass death for a semester. It was a small class.
I’ve read quite a bit on WW II and the Holocaust. Several dozen books. But there was something about those two.
Or maybe I was just in a blue period when I tried to read them. Could try again.
Choosing what to read.. not easy. I’m beginning to wonder if books have ever mattered.
I wonder what he would’ve thought about computing and the internet. Methinks just maybe he wouldn’t be a huge fan of google, facebook and “the cloud” way of doing things. Prolly would have had a lot of twitter followers. Just a hunch.
True…he lived in different era.
Thomas Sowell does pretty good.
Wait a minute…we HAD a ‘white Al Sharpton’. He was a successful comedian despite his douchebaggery. Is Guy Cabalero still alive?
