World War I Didn’t Start the Fire

September 09th, 2014 by G.

This is a very important essay on WWI. A shorter summary here. My sense is that the first point, that the Treaty of Versailles was not uniquely horrible and didn’t cause WWII, is fairly accepted by the better informed. The argument about the avant-garde is more novel. In fact, the avant-garde argument goes well beyond WWI, which is why Vader linked to it recently.

September 09th, 2014 by Bertie

Oh, I say, dash it! Dan Peterson is hosting an open discussion of the Book of Mormon, one chapter a day. It’s open to anyone who wants to contribute, nibs and us jolly old regular chappies alike. (He explains the project here). To date, if that’s the expression I want, the contributions have been quite fruity. Good, if you know what I mean.

The first week’s discussions are listed below by yours truly. On the advice of Jeeves, I’ve included a taste of Dan Peterson’s thought for each chapter, by way of whetting the old appetite. Toodle-oo and bon appetit! (more…)
