recommends George Nash on tradionalist thought in the US so I looked up
some blurby reviews -------------- reviews
of The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America: Since 1945. By George
H. Nash. ------ firstthings.com Intercollegiate Studies Institute.
467 pp. $24.95. George Nash knows as much about the intellectual history
of modern American conservatism as anybody, and it is a pleasure to have
his classic 1976 study again available. This reprint includes a brief Epilogue
(just thirteen pages) bringing matters up to date. Nash's original work
told in impeccable detail of the post-World War II coming together-not
without fractious controversy-of the three groups of modern conservative
intellectuals: the libertarians, the traditionalists, and the anti-Communists.
National Review provided them their major platform, and NR's Editor, William
F. Buckley, Jr., presided with a shrewd and ecumenical spirit over the
emerging intellectual right. Nash's necessarily cursory Epilogue introduces
the two other voices of modern conservatism: the neoconservatives and the
religious right. As always, his treatment is evenly balanced and scrupulously
fair. Conservatives of all persuasions can be grateful to have George Nash
as their historian. ----------------
cwu.edu/~millerj/writings/reviews/nash.html review of The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945 by George H. Nash Intercollegiate Studies Institute isi.org originally appeared in Small Press Magazine traverse.com/smallpress The reprinting of this book 20 years after its initial publication (Basic Books, 1976) may be intended to help elucidate conservatives' most pressing current problem: the widening gap between the religious right and the business right threatening the Republican coalition. Nash's treatment of conservatism as a movement comprised of three distinct strands, libertarianism, traditionalism, and anti-communism, points out that there has long been tension and an uneasy peace among conservatives. Unfortunately, this insight is the beginning and end of Nash's contribution. Nash has purportedly written a history of ideas, but it rarely deals with the intellectual content of conservative ideas, leaving us without any idea whether the encroaching conservative schism is reversible or inevitable. The book fails where it most needs to succeed because Nash barely discusses the contents of post-War conservative works, opting instead to focus on the careers of prominent pundits. While we are introduced to a large number of seminal writers and publications, there is not the kind of detailed treatment of different conservative theories that one might expect from a history of ideas (particularly one 455 pages long). What Nash has written here is a voluminous multi-subject biography that deals mainly with issues like the in-fighting at the National Review, Russel Kirk's army experiences, and the academic pedigrees of Austrian economists. With such an approach, Nash might be expected to provide an explanation of the rise of American conservatism, but no such account is attempted. Nash simply reports on major publications and events, and in the end, this book is neither philosophical nor sociological nor even historical enough. The breadth of coverage and breezy tone might have made this a good introduction to American conservatism, but the length and density make it inappropriate for this role.

Jim Devine: I finally finished this one and have a comment: Louis Proyect writes: Chomsky leaned at early date toward the Israel kibbutz as some kind of "socialist experiment", long after the colonization intentions of the settlers had become obvious. He did turn against the particular kibbutz he worked on, but not because of any economic shortcomings. Instead, the racism of the settlers was the key factor. To this day, Chomsky still speaks positively about the Zionist outposts without really addressing concerns about the class nature of the Israeli state. (Guardian, May 14, 2001)< ----------- One of the first articles I read by Chomsky was in the San Francisco-based journal SOCIALIST REVOLUTION (now called "Socialist Review," if it still exists) in the 1970s, about the class nature of the Israeli state -- or, more accurately, about the ethnic supremacist system prevailing there. The element of truth in the statements above is that Chomsky seems to frame all criticism of Israel by saying that something (the expansion of settlements, the occupation, Ariel Sharon, etc.) is bad for the Jews, not just for the Palestinians. (For him, the "Friends of Israel," e.g., conservative U.S. Jews who cheer-lead for Israel and accuse him of being a self-hating Jew, are not true friends.)

Cryptography, the science of secret writing, is almost as old as writing itself. The hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt were deliberately arcane: both writing and a cypher. Literacy in ancient Egypt was hedged about with daunting difficulty, so as to assure the elite powers of priest and scribe. Ancient Assyria also used cryptography, including the unique and curious custom of "funerary cryptography." Assyrian tombs sometimes featured odd sets of cryptographic cuneiform symbols. The Assyrian passerby, puzzling out the import of the text, would mutter the syllables aloud, and find himself accidentally uttering a blessing for the dead. Funerary cryptography was a way to steal a prayer from passing strangers.

- Starting a surfsession with leftblogs.blogspot.com and fibravelling via plep I end up here: http://fablog.ehrensteinland.com/ ----------- blisspuppet.com/ -------- http://sephiroticum.net/snn/ say no to netscape some sort of stupod poll???? couple of hundred members, almost 3 of them --- NOTE: These are NOT my own personal beliefs. Look at the "loading times" thing. C'mon. That's ridiculous. These are merely possible reasons for why other people might not like Netscape. And plus, this is meant to sound funny. So don't attack me, you raging pro-Netscape people. Find something better to do. And don't even bother signing my guestbook. I will automatically delete it. This site has been up since July of 2001. Believe me, I've heard every point anyone could ever make, multiple times. You're not going to be telling me anything new. Also, this "about" section is obviously referring to Netscape 4.x. I'm not referring to Netscape 6. Netscape 6 is a good browser. I'm still all about IE, though. IE fucking owns your mom. XD ???about How many of you put "Internet Explorer" on your splash pages? I know I sure do. The reason: because sites always look better with Internet Explorer, and you want to promote the use of this superior browser. Netscape decreases the quality of a site. I hate it. Here are just a few examples of why I say NO to Netscape: 1. Style tags? What style tags? If you think people are going to see different cursors, styled-links, etc., you're dead wrong. Netscape sees your style commands and says "fuck that." Who wants a browser which ignores your commands? Especially commands like 'style,' which give websites that extra little flare, we all know and love. 2. Frames. Your frames sure look nice on Internet Explorer, don't they? How about you check 'em out with Netscape. Uh-oh! Where did all those obnoxious lines come from? Well, don't mind those, Netscape just decided to put those in there, even though you have all the apropriate frameborder/spacing codes set. You better try to fix it. Or, you could just promote the use of IE. ^.~ 3. Tables. Wow, that website looks really good with Internet Explorer. Let's check it out with Netscape. What the fuck? It's gone! All that's there is a blank, white screen! What happened? Well, Netscape decided that since you forgot to end a couple "td" tags, that it wasn't going to even show the page. Isn't that sweet? Internet Explorer, on the other hand, assumes you meant to close them. Hence, the page shows up fine. 4. Loading Plugins, blah blah blah... Internet Explorer takes, on average, 4 seconds to load. Netscape, on the other hand, takes 7-13 seconds to load. The reason: It feels the necesity to tell you every little fucking thing it's doing. I could care less. I don't wanna see all that shit. All I want to see, is a fully-loaded browser. I know it may only be 5 seconds longer, but that's 5 more seconds of my time, taken by Netscape and it's all-star crappiness. You might have your own reasons for disliking Netscape, which is perfectly fine. These are only a few. You don't even have to agree with these. But, if you don't like Netscape, join the rest of us.

Coming to power so naturally because power comes so naturally to them, they rise up from their origins as an underground fringe cult to become the world's new masters. Along the way, they meet a few obstacles - and deal with them using the Ohm methods of using power, tending towards persuasion instead of coercion. And these overminds are masters of persuasion...and many other things. These epic-length collection of serial fantasies take the age-old connection between sex and power to new heights - and depths - of extremity that should captivate those who find the idea of mental domination and submission intriguing. A heady brew mixing sex fantasy and speculative fiction with a dash of absurdist self-referentiality and sardonic humor here and there. ----- This material contains rather explicit descriptions of physical, mental and metaphysical sexual acts, some of which may be considered by certain people to be incomprehensible, disturbing, or uncomfortably arousing. OHMAEGA is "psi-fi" - i.e. erotica dealing with acts of mind control and seduction. It is intended for open-minded audiences who are mature enough to distinguish fantasy from reality.

When I put people on my friends list I usually just pick out a couple of colours at random or leave it black and white if I'm in a hurry or in lethargic mode. I thought maybe it would be better to have relevant colours, i.e. the ones you'd choose for yourself. Or the prominent colours you've used on your page. I don't get to see everyone's page designs reading a friends list. Which is sort of lame. That might be a good thing for LJ to do, a paiduser perk or something...to have a friends page in which each friend's entry appears in that person's chosen design. (Mental note to self: actually get around to suggesting this. It's a cool idea.) For now, all I can do is use your chosen colours. So I'd like everyone who reads this who's on my friends list (that means most of you who are reading this, I think) to leave me a comment telling me the two colours you would suggest to use with your names.

How time-forms are used in music to generate living, meaningful performances from written scores is described and proved with computer generated classical music, in the context of four modes of time experience, t1, t2, t3, and t4. The modes apply to different time scales and use different natural data processing properties. Models of appropriate peptide dynamics are suggested for some of these amygda-related processes.

High interest rates do not matter as -much when sales are easy to achieve, profit margins are high and- do not merely represent, to a large extent, high inflation rates. -Low interest rates are not an encouragement to take up loans and to- increase production when customers are missing, sales are low and -factories work only at a fraction of their potential, while -unemployment is high. Nor do low interest rates CAUSE inflation -or do high interest rates CAUSE a deflation. To judge the economy- and economic developments only by interest rates, especially only -the interest rates for monopoly and forced currencies, is almost -as one-sided as is phrenology, in trying to determine a person's- capabilities and character merely from the shape of his skull. -- J.

I posted the following at indymedia.org open newswire 211989The posthumously publised writings of John Hamaker after his aeons and cultures spanning book of 78 called Survival of Civilization (SoC) are online (in pfd format 2.9Mb) now. These follow ups are enhanced with a liberal selection of quotes and relevant facts from weather watchers quarternarians etc by Don Weaver the catalyst for and co-author of SoC --- Follow ups???? Geezz, hardly; the true leader is as alone as the hero in King of Hearts I guess. This compilaton is a digital of the follow ups Don Weaver circulation privately under the name of Solar or Ice age bulletin, I just asked him if he will let me do a prfr format of it (saves around 10x average paper reqs for conventionally 'full' formats); look for it. http://www.remineralize-the-earth.org/don/ http://www.remineralize-the-earth.org/don/tlarte.pdf 2.9Mb /
remineralize-the-earth.org features a new yahoo forum wherin "earthdon" wrote this to me: ..... You may want to consider re-stating just what you would like and for what reason(s), so I/we can give your request to change the current presentation of the books in PDF form remineralize-the-earth.org/don.------ you forgot to add: .... some thought -- to finish that sentence,. .. . talk about making sense, Don. To make my request simple: offer your books in as many formats as possible to accomodate differently restricted potential downloaders. I personally think the format offered now is paper wasteful but I realize I am in the extreme end of the use efficiency factor. Thanks for all your work Don and I see your adress changed. Finally escaped urbanity? I guess I am about to soon too. Any suggestions? How was Scotland? Have they a website up? --------- (It was revised about a week ago to create bookmarks and thumbnails for both books, plus to activate the inner Table of Contents, making them easier to use.) Thanks for looking to network in Europe and worldwide. The college/climate info you posted was interesting, and I suggest all users of this Forum be somewhat careful of posting too much info at a time, and to strive for clarity and succinctness, so that everyone can understand the words and not get bogged down with more "information overload." (Now, you may want to "take me to task" for producing the 540-page TO LOVE AND REGENERATE THE EARTH. I can only say I tried to make a comprehensive case which could persuade even the often overly-skeptical "scientific community," and people in general, that we have an eco-climatic crisis needing our awakened and enlightened response.) ------------- Anwar: I think what you say may matter very much, and it would be wise to assume it does. If you read what John Hamaker says about sand and the various particle sizes in the soil in Chapter 2 of THE SURVIVAL OF CIVILIZATION, and study the chart on particle sizes and relative surface areas for microorganism mineral consumption, you will see there is a vast difference between sand and silt and the finest silts we usually call "dust." John felt some sands (not the leached out, predominantly quartz sands) could be useful if run through a close-set roller mill, or the like, to reduce them to finer sizes. If you have a sand with sufficient fine silt or dust in it, then you or your local desert may be able to produce abundantly, with our help in seeding, planting trees, etc. as you suggest. Coral or limestone sands might have positive uses, like other "liming" materials, but those tend not to be complete, full-spectrum remineralization materials to produce the most fertile soils and chains-of-life. If this response has been inadequate in some way, please let me know, Piet and Anwar. ---------- Anwar, I too began making the soil and health, Etc., connections while a student at U.C. Berkeley in the 1970s, and appreciate your "uncommon sense." Let's hope we'll soon see the day when it becomes common! ~Don Weaver
How many formats are possible? ---------- infinite Don, this is the cyber age you know. Can you list them in order of what you consider most to least useful, including PDF? pfd is great for folk with unlimited access and optimal screen quality/lighting seating, etc. A small majority of all users I guess. I myself use prfr (personal, home, candlelit and unheated reads in 'my' shack ('bout to lose it actually, again) tailored to taste); takes me all day to fix up an issue of 15-20 pages and I put it online then too, trimming some of the more disappointing items out of the average 6-12 of them. Thus I have a newspaper that is printed almost to the edge of the paper in a small lettersize which puts my effeciency gains (versus the conventional printeditions and the version formats behind 'print this document' buttons and icons. Ever seen any yet, you netphobe? :-) <- that's a smiley for you) many webpublications feature besides/behind articles for their online readership. Note: my formating is so utterly compact bycause I perpetrate sweeping manipulations, wiping all headlines and section heading including white lines out in one fell swoop. I seperate items with ----dashes---) up around/upward of 5-10. I am not sure I impress anybody but myself with that though; seems people get annoyed about the lack of paragraphs and whitelines and such. That's what I understand from the little feedback I was blessed with so far. I think the biggest objection to pdf is that is has large system requirements, definitely over the heads of your average poorer user in say a foreign country; another problem is the download time with such a hump; you'd have to at least cut it down (comparable to your giant peach simile), except this time people may not even get any peach at all cause working across phonelines in the backwaters of digitalia is painfully slow and the longer it takes (the bigger the bite) the more glitches can 'abort' the transaction. see mediageek.org who ships old computers to equador from san fransisco or portland I believe to get an idea about other aspects of reaching as wide an audience as possible. Well, I'm with you Don, I'll try to cut down my longwindedness too. Many trees down in last night's storm by the way. Here is a good bannertext from yesterday's SF antiwar demo: excess of evil lies behind the bushes. from invotion.org 'blatherwerks' ---------- No one has to use any paper to read them, but why do you consider PDF "paper wasteful"? How much paper do you expect to use? ---
collusion.org/Article.cfm?ID=313 The New Cryptography by Bruce Sterling Literary Freeware -- Not For Commercial Use from THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION, Writing is a medium of communication and understanding, but there are times and places when one wants an entirely different function from writing: concealment and deliberate bafflement. Cryptography, the science of secret writing, is almost as old as writing itself. The hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt were deliberately arcane: both writing and a cypher. Literacy in ancient Egypt was hedged about with daunting difficulty, so as to assure the elite powers of priest and scribe. Ancient Assyria also used cryptography, including the unique and curious custom of "funerary cryptography." Assyrian tombs sometimes featured odd sets of cryptographic cuneiform symbols. The Assyrian passerby, puzzling out the import of the text, would mutter the syllables aloud, and find himself accidentally uttering a blessing for the dead. Funerary cryptography was a way to steal a prayer from passing strangers.
