Jared Taylor is a polarizing figure. Ironically, I read this book mainly because Twitter banned him from their platform for his political beliefs. Living in the Basque Country I knew enough of ethnic conflicts. I felt them in my bones.
Jared Taylor is a polarizing figure. This book can be evaluated in two ways: the presentation, and the ideas. I'd probably rate it 4/5 on presentation, and I'm undecided on the ideas. Taylor's core argument is that diversity in itself isn't strength, and he gives numerous examples to support this. On my father’s side, my grandparents met each other while displaced during the civil war.

Well, I finally finished it. This is one of the books that has received the most flack from LDS members since its . A historical narrative of not just Mormon church history but what was going on in America during the same time frame.
Well, I finally finished it. This is one of the books that has received the most flack from LDS members since its writing. I guess it makes sense, written by a member who had left the faith, the niece of a Prophet (David O. McKay) it is an engaging read that formulates a human perspective on Joseph Smith, which some refer to as the "pious fraud" perspective. The sourcing is thorough and the history first-rate and the biography is actually a very readable book. With this historical background it certainly sheds some light on the molding of Mormon history.

Here is my full summer reading list: Upheaval, by Jared Diamond. A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles. It seems like everyone I know has read this book. I finally joined the club after my brother-in-law sent me a copy, and I’m glad I did. I’m a big fan of everything Jared has written, and his latest is no exception. The book explores how societies react during moments of crisis. He uses a series of fascinating case studies to show how nations managed existential challenges like civil war, foreign threats, and general malaise. Towles’s novel about a count sentenced to life under house arrest in a Moscow hotel is fun, clever, and surprisingly upbeat.

They say the baker's daughter was turned into an owl for refusing Jesus' bread. It is an actual position in royal households
They say the baker's daughter was turned into an owl for refusing Jesus' bread. My lord, we know what we are now, but not what we may become. May God be at your table. Also, I want to make it clear that the Maid of Honour in this story is not the same as maid of honour in weddings. It is an actual position in royal households. Only unmarried women can hold such position.
It is also called the Socratic paradox. The phrase is not one that Socrates himself is ever recorded as saying. This saying is also connected or conflated with the answer to a question Socrates (according to Xenophon) or Chaerephon (according to Plato) is said to have posed to the Pythia, the Oracle of Delphi, in which the oracle stated something to the effect of "Socrates is the wisest.
