You hit me with a cricket bat!
Ha! Twelve years!

I hate doing server migrations. You can't start until everyone else has logged out and gone home, and then you have to be the first one in the next morning in case anything breaks.**
Meanwhile, barbecue at Susie's place!

Another thousand words and I have covered Dualism: Generic, Cartesian, and the rather remarkable FitzMaurician variant. That just leaves me to tackle Dialectical Materialism - just the thing for a rainy Winter's day - and then I'm done!
With the introduction...
Update: Right on the money, 6000 words of introduction. Time for lunch.
Another 1200 words done on my "Why Anything" post. That covered the introduction to Berkelian Idealism. Now I just have to deal with Cartesian Dualism and Dialectical Materialism and then the introduction's done and I can start writing the actual body of the post.
As I said before, I didn't set out to write a book, but it's all necessary background for presenting my thesis. I mean, I can state my thesis in five words, but while that will cause a certain amount of grave nodding of heads, it won't convince anyone who isn't already convinced, and worse, it doesn't tell you how to fix the problem.
Well, 4200 down, probably about 6000 to go. La la la...
I could write a book about this. Unlike my idea for The Politics of Sense and Nonsense, this one is stuff I mostly sort of know, and I could do the research as I went along. Anyone looking for a 60,000 to 70,000 word book called On the Epistemological Foundations of 21st Century Political Structure?

I have a lengthy post in the works in which I explain, well, pretty much everything:
I may end up posting it in sections, since part 1 (of at least 3 parts) is done. We'll see.
- Why the French, who individually are often perfectly nice people, have collectively given the world... France.
- Why lefty protestors have dirty hair.
- Why the Great American Democratic hope is none of the above.
- Why the 20th century was what it was.
- Why we are here, and where we are going.
- And, last but not least, how to explain your viewpoint to followers of Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky.*

Andrew Sullivan asks Have they no shame?
Well, no. Duh. Shame is what happens to other people.
(Warning: The picture that the link takes you to is pretty offensive. Poorly-executed Hieronymous Bosch-as-leftist-propaganda sort of thing.)
