With The Myth of the 20th Century
And the Red-Face-Island War
Some six months ago I discussed with Adam Smith coming back on The Myth of the 20th Century podcast. Adam, the author of Exit Strategy, wanted me to come up with a point of discussion and I suggested speaking of The Peloponnesian War as related by Thucydides and Xenophon and miss-interpreted by Cold War academics as a model for understanding U.S. - Soviet relations when it is a much better model for looking at postmodern American Culture War.
Well, Miss Lockhart set me up with a taping session this weekend with Adam, Nick, Hans and Hank, and I am not yet done annotating Thucydides, something I arrogantly thought I would do on my cross-country train trip until I found myself writing 16 chapters in an Apocalisp book from my travel encounters.
So, although I am now back online, with the exception of The Third Rail and the Myth 20 recordings this weekend, I will be sequestered in Punky's wine cellar, delving deep into the war between innovation and discipline, thought and silence, spear and oar and not be posting again until this coming Monday, April 27, when I will begin posting on The Red-Face-Island War.

Hey James, I like your appearances on The Third Rail, been checking out your site. I always hang on every word when you appear on that podcast.

Also you said you had a problem with potassium, check out the Snake Juice diet from Cole. I've been fasting 72 hours, and 60 hours every week, I eat 5 meals a week. The fasting days I drink Snake Juice, basically water with Pink Himalayan Salt and No Salt, I drink about 1.5 litres a dat, 1.5 tsp's of No Salt (tons of potassium) and 3/4 of Pink Himalayan salt. You can up that with more salt and water if you're sweating more.
