At the top of this page are several tabs; I have just updated the following:
This timeline offers specific dates / events leading up to World War II (although since I began this series I have gone beyond WWII for certain topics) – with the earliest entry in 1793 and the establishment of the East India Company through the last entry in 1975 with the end of the Vietnam War.
I have gleaned these dates and events from several of the history books that I have read – at this moment, the sources include 15 books; there are also several entries that link to websites.
This post offers my version of revisionist history. I identify what I was “brought up to believe,” and offer a link to a post that debunks this belief. Virtually all of the linked posts are bionic mosquito originals, a handful are of outside sources. As of this moment, I have exploded something close to 100 of my childhood fairytales.
I begin by flushing out the idea of thin-libertarianism and continue to examine the connection of culture, custom, and tradition to a society that respects the non-aggression principle.
My writing on this topic has generated both the most valuable conversation and also the most frustrating conversation. Certainly this has been my most satisfying intellectual journey (within the universe of this blog) – and it truly has been and remains a journey. I have come a long way on some of the aspects of this topic; I might not like being reminded of some of my earliest thoughts!
This post identifies a) the books I have read that thereafter b) resulted in one or more blog posts. Currently I am up to something over 50 books, with anywhere from one to a dozen blog posts on each.
