We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
there's a literary firestorm about the meaning of the last sentence in The Name of the Rose .. "Stat rosa pristina nomine; nomina nuda tenemus."
personally, I think "And what is left of the rose is only its name" catches the nuances in the original. I think is poignant that Adso, the narrator of the novel told in flashback, can't recall the name of the peasant girl who was his lover (and then executed in the story).

I wonder if Albion's Seed would get published in today's Politically Correct, White Privilege loathing (and self-loathing) world.
Of course, it's doubtful that the "safe space" and "Trigger Warning" generation knows the meaning (or cares to know) of Albion's Seed.
Albion's Seed is a superb book; one to read and re-read. It needs to be rediscovered. And as a complement to it, Daniel Hannan's book, Inventing Freedom, is a fascinating tour of the historical roots and manifest contributions of the "Anglosphere." Anglo-Saxons have a lot to be proud of.
