Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

The Colombian Exchange



Gosh, you might figure I've been watching a lot of historical documentaries lately.

'Tis true.

This is a visually compelling history, with nice re-enactments and computer graphics.  It's Eurocentric as hell, but that is the world we live in, and the only way to fight that is in your head while accumulating a differing body of evidence if you can find it.

The guest historians offering their input in this work are superb.
