Here she is, in her semi-finished state, my dissertation. You can’t read it and the pages aren’t all fully visible but its all there. When I am done I wont be able to fit it on the screen like this.

Out of interest one has begun exploring the ‘British people’ tag and one is both confused and marginally enraged.

Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

Preach


I think that this is a really bad representation of what the ‘dark ages’ were all about and their reality. Dark ages are only really labeled as such in Europe because of the European Renaissance thinkers who thought that they were moving into the a new brighter world of innovation and creation. The reality was that the dark ages were fillled with just as much art, culture, learning, and architectural developments as the Renaissance which followed it. As for the witch hunts/burnings, well they didn’t really occur until after the Protestant Reformation in the fifteenth century. The old Roman Catholic church by its very nature was far more accepting of the concept of witchcraft and magic which were both bound (generally) to the power of God. This was because of the mysticism which surrpunded the Holy Trinity and the Eucharist. European society was also far more willing to accept magic as an explanation to phenomenon which they could not explain. So lets brighten up the dark ages.

"twenty is for trying. twenty is for failing. twenty is not for getting married or for giving birth to babies. twenty is not, i have decided, for making a home. for standing still. twenty is for falling in love and falling asleep in the big, warm beds of your friends and waking up to kisses and walking out the door, disheveled, to eggs and bacon and toast. stay up late, sleep in late, build things, break things. hurt yourself. forgive yourself. you are the sum of your parts, two and five and twelve and twenty. you are baby and girl and woman all at once. you are naive, and you are scarred. it can’t be helped, darling. growing up is a contradiction in terms. adulthood is a lie."
