Thanks to a fellow blogger, I have found a new book to read.
Where the author is quoted as saying things like this.
“You can get everything of a material nature you want, more than you ever dreamed of having, from gold and silver to furs and foods, and in any quantity you want, provided only that you are willing to venture and work.”
There’s that word, again.
He goes on to say,
“And something you never had within your historical memory will come to you as a byproduct, and that is an extraordinary degree of freedom.”
Did you catch that? Freedom. Personal freedom and democratic forms of government were one of the many fruits of the Great Frontier.
Written by University of Texas historian, Walter Prescott Webb (1888–1963), it’s an explanation of his Boom Hypothesis of Modern History. The Great Frontier, is the title of the book, and I can’t wait to read it in its entirety.
In the attached synopsis, Webb’s hypothesis explains that this 400 year boom has been over for decades now. Going together with my previous post of no money in our future, he explains what is to come for us all. However, I have a pretty good idea what it will be. The Metropolis is dead, and it will be the Metropolis that will drag us down with it. IF we let it. The Kenyan has to be their representative, making sure that we do.
Just too interesting to not read.
Read more here, and see if you may be interested as well. If you’re a history buff, or just curious, I am sure you will.
Special thanks to the fellow who shared this with me. And you know who you are. 🙂
