360 days ago today (April 19, 2004), I toured the California Legislature
and visited Assemblywoman Lois Wolk. While I was there, the CA Assembly
passed a resolution declaring a Holocaust Remembrance Week. Several
holocaust survivors were there.

It must have been a horrible experience for them. Hopefully they're alright today,
safely away from California.

I think maybe they were just commemorating the Holocaust.
It would cost too much to duplicate it. Unless we just give
all Jews a free car (with bad brakes) and send them down I-5....

Thanks for joining in nemo, you're always the life of these little fascist

William Godwin (1756-1836) was the founder of philosophical anarchism. In
his An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (1793) he argued that government
is a corrupting force in society, perpetuating dependence and ignorance, but
that it will be rendered increasingly unnecessary and powerless by the
gradual spread of knowledge. Politics will be displaced by an enlarged
personal morality as truth conquers error and mind subordinates matter. In
this development the rigorous exercise of private judgment, and its candid
expression in public discussion, plays a central role, motivating his
rejection of a wide range of co- operative and rule-governed practices which
he regards as tending to mental enslavement, such as law, private property,
marriage and concerts. Epitomising the optimism of events in France at the
time he began writing, Godwin looked forward to a period in which the
dominance of mind over matter would be so complete that mental
perfectibility would take a physical form, allowing us to control illness
and ageing and become immortal.
Godwin's moral theory is often described as utilitarian. He clearly does
play an important part in the history of utilitarianism, not least for his
invocation of both British and French writers in the tradition, such as
Joseph Priestley and d'Holbach and Helvetius, and for the way that his
ethical theory is underpinned by a distinctive rationalist necessarianism on
the basis of which he insisted on a strong form of first order impartiality.
One of Godwin's lasting contributions to moral philosophy, ‘the famous fire
cause’, in which we are asked to consider whom I should save from a burning
room if I can only save one person and if the choice is between Archbishop
Fénelon and a common chambermaid. Fénelon is about to compose his immortal
Télémaque and the chambermaid turns out to be my mother. Godwin's conclusion
that we must save the former relies on consequentialist grounds. However,
since his account of the content of utility is inseparable from the
development of truth and wisdom, and since we can best promote this through
the full and free exercise of private judgment and public discussion, the
resulting position looks more like a form of perfectionism than
utilitarianism.

Godwin's philosophical importance rests principally on his Political
Justice. He wrote other philosophical works, The Enquirer (1798) and
Thoughts on Man (1831), but he has become perhaps better known for his
novels, the most famous of which is Caleb Williams (1794), and for the part
he played in literary London from 1783-1836 — from his heyday in the 1790s
as the radical philosopher who married Mary Wollstonecraft, through the next
forty years in which he was variously the butt of attacks by Thomas Malthus,
Samuel Parr and a host of anti-jacobin scribes, friend of the romantic
poets, publisher and author of children's books, father-in-law and sponger
off Percy Bysshe Shelley, and historian of the Civil War, to his final
anomalous position as a government pensioner supported by a Tory
administration. His papers and his diary, which sparsely records what he
read and wrote and whom he met, provide an immense resource for scholars of
the romantic period.

Nope. They're tits! Boobies are small tropical gannets so they'd be on cliff
face instead of a thatched bird table!

We had a pair of tits nesting in an overflow pipe last year.
