Back in the harness

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

In case you wondered: The pause in the activity on our blog was not occasioned by any desire or a fault of our own; nor, we pray and hope, it could be blamed on ASIO, the plethora of “human rights” commissars, ASIS, Senator Brandis, His Honour Judge Finkelstein or even comrade Putin’s secret service, apparently already checking whether Brisbane is safe enough for the forthcoming November talkfest of the Gross Twenty (G20).

The interruption was most likely caused by a computer glitch. We can thus safely blame Gates and assorted software soft-headed nerds, who can’t imagine that there could be people in the real world who just wish to use computers, not to play with them for hours and hours and days.

Because of those problems, some future posts may appear to be slightly obsolete, at least by our and your standards. Still, the other blogs had the opportunity to catch up, but we guess two weeks is not enough. Two decades?quill.1

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
