What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 91 in a series – “… the government would be found on the side of emancipation.”

November 18th, 2019 No comments

“And now, on this day of January 1st, 1863, the formal and solemn announcement was made that thereafter the government would be found on the side of emancipation. This proclamation changed everything. It gave a new direction to the councils of the Cabinet, and to the conduct of the national arms.”

From Life and Times of Frederick Douglass: (An African American Heritage Book)

Why I'm Reading: He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.

PREFACE.

If the one who makes two blades of grass grow where only one grew before is “a public benefactor” so is the one who improves the daily food of the people, either by supplying articles of superior excellence or by suggesting superior methods of preparation, thus adds to the health and happiness of the people.

This book is presented to the public with the purpose in mind of impressing the importance of using only high grade food articles of known purity and excellence and at the same time suggesting methods of preparing the food that will add to their palatability and wholesomeness.

The government reports as well as the thousands of family papers are constantly calling attention to the dishonest and often injurious adulteration of food articles and are constantly reiterating the fact that the only protection the purchaser can have is by buying only in packages bearing the name of a reliable manufacturer.

What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 39 in a series – “…turned to the Landbund, a violent peasant self-help league.”

November 18th, 2019 No comments

“The Weimar Republic was triply damned in their eyes: dominated by distant Prussia, by sinful and decadent Berlin, and by “reds” who thought only of cheap food for urban workers.

[It] forced many of them into debt and foreclosure, desperate Schleswig-Holstein cattle farmers abandoned the DNVP and turned to the Landbund, a violent peasant self-help league.”

Having done very poorly with an urban strategy in the elections of 1924 and 1928, the Nazi Party turned to the farmers.33 They chose well. Agriculture had prospered nowhere in the 1920s, because world markets were flooded by new producers” From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton

Excerpt From The Mueller Report: Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election Robert S. Mueller

“By the end of the 2016 U.S. election, the IRA had the ability to reach millions of U.S. persons through their social media accounts. Multiple IRA-controlled Facebook groups and Instagram accounts had “hundreds of thousands of U.S. participants.”

My friend, Paul, runs a cool recording studio in North Hollywood (ReadyMixMusic.com) and has collected these snare drums over the years. Clients can come in and choose the perfect snare sound for their track. A few months ago he decided to turn them into an art display, too. I took some photographs the moment I saw it. Too cool not to. — Douglas

In contrast to the lovely tiled facades of other churches, this medieval church is moodier, heavier and more substantial.
