I don't know, I found him a little dull compared to Montaigne from the same era, but I am reminded that much of the aspects of rousseau and locke and others were long since assimilated, so they just seem dull because the most vital things they talked about happening have long since happened.

Slavery is obviously bad but I don't like that all historical examples of it now have to immediately be filtered through association to American racialized slavery, which would not have made any sense to the ancients in how they used the term.

That makes no sense, porcupine was not at all uncommon to eat back then and the meat is not tough. It is actually quite tasty and not at all gamey. The only reason it is not still a common food is that there is no sport in hunting them since they are slow and instead of running they just turn their back and stick out their quills, you can literally just walk up to one and shoot it point blank. They are a bit of a pain to skin.

Jenny was engaged to Marx when she was 22, and coming from a respected and well-established family. Marx himself was 17 at the time, and had no positive marriage prospects (no wealth, no name, no pedigree) aside from his character.

The fat fuck managed to fulfill (you)r dream - getting Christian-married to his wholesome devout pure aristocrat Christian white virgin childhood friend girl from his hometown, while still a teen, marrying upwards. And then he still gave birth to communism.

I saw Jordan Peterson at a grocery store in Toronto yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”

I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

> Lafargue was born in Santiago de Cuba. His father was the owner of coffee plantations in Cuba, and the family's wealth allowed Lafargue to study in Santiago and then in France. His four grandparents were a French Christian, an Indian from Jamaica, a Saint Dominican refugee from Saint-Domingue, and a French Jew. Lafargue has remarked that he was an “international[ist] of blood before [he] was one of ideology” and that “the blood of three oppressed races runs in my veins.” When Daniel De Leon asked him about his origins, he promptly replied, “I am proudest of my Negro extraction.”
