    Tangential: All these Lawyers and Constitutional Scholars make terrible hash of everything.

    If an American is armed with his Constitutional Rights, a Copy of the Constitution and the Federalist papers – and the 2d Amendment – what need do we have of Lawyers or Teachers?

    We have our own Sacred Holy Writ and the Right of Might on our side.

    [see Protestants we can learn from you.]

    I think this is a winning formula moving forward. Not for NRx but for American Men.

    This misses the point. You’ve never needed Lawyers and Teachers, but unless you can exit they will be imposed on you regardless.

    I did preface with Tangential.

    I was rather thinking the lawyers and teachers can exit.

    You are correct however and thank you; we’ve never needed them.

    Whether I’m right or not, I’m unsatisfied with the conclusion entailed. We’re endorsing might makes right, but MMR has put in charge the lawyer-teacher-priest parasites that we want to purge. Hmm.

    “Refused permission to translate the Bible, Tyndale fled to the Netherlands, and as a fugitive produced essentially the language we use today”

    So he fled merry ol’ monarchical England to the most liberal state in Europe, and from there ‘produced essentially the language we use today’. hmm….

    The Netherlands gave us Spinoza and the Georgian invasion and harboured Tyndale, Locke and Pierre Bayle. Makes you wonder about the Perfidious Dutchman.

    quite natural, all linguistics is about ‘promise’ and ‘frustration’

    Linguistics is about repressed tribal violence. A language is an assemblage of shibboleths.

    I apprehend you at the Jordan. Are you competent in my code? A yes or no question.

    Mistakes are costly.

    The “58” relevant to the Bodleian 1605 catalogue isn’t the number of English titles; it’s the number of HEBREW titles. Link to that library on my name.

    James Thompson should know from ‘driveth the plough’; he has delivered quite the pile of manure here.

    @vxxc2014

    No Might handed over political decisions to civilian control. At the time everyone with political power was expected to be a soldier whether Lord, Gentry or voter. That’s what civilian control of the military means. Soldiers just fight – an English innovation after Cromwell died and part indeed of the restoration – and stay out of politics. However at the time the notion that a priestly class of lawyers and academics never mind the media would rule was unforeseen.

    Democracy is Infantry or looting and in 2500 years no one has found another way.

    We’ve left behind both democracy [nigga please] and now have administrative looter govt of a priestly class.

    What I’m proposing is the return of Might makes Right and Might rules. We can use any good book that’s handy, in America that’s the Constitution. What I’m saying is depose the lawyers – throw them down with Constitution in hand. It’s just another sacred document and I’m borrowing the Protestant method. Throw down the priests and the Holy book with the gun rules.

    We didn’t put them in charge. They conned their way in with FDR. Now they can be thrown out. Don’t want to quibble over History. I saying what is to be done.

    If our current soldier class is all that mighty, I would readily welcome them to overthrow our Chomskys and Keohanes.

    If they can’t, and are in need of assistance, your definition of might is going to start looking awfully circular.

    Another good one from the Archbishop Cranmer:

    O GOD, who art the author of peace and lover of concord,
    in knowledge of whom standeth our eternal life,
    whose service is perfect freedom:
    Defend us thy humble servants in all assaults of our enemies;
    that we, surely trusting in thy defence,
    may not fear the power of any adversaries;

    A.J.P.

    As a non-native speaker it is the extremely high influence of French-Latin is the most noticeable, given how originally it was something similar to e.g. Danish. There is the Anglish Moot project demonstrating how English would look without it e.g. http://anglish.wikia.com/wiki/Cropcraft

    My go-to example was seeing a sign with Community Recreation Centre on it in the UK – what’s that in Latin, Centrum Recreationis Communitatis? Anglish roughly gives it as Meanship Fun and Games Middle.

    Anyway, so it was Tyndale who turned English into a language in which Community Recreation Centre can be written? Or I am misunderstanding the process? Roughly when did the king’s horsemen turn into royal cavalry (or even regal equestrians, although nobody talks like that)?

    Note – I actually like that English is in a way better at being Latin than even French is, because I dislike the French letter-dropping: objet, contrat… that’s ugly Latin.

    The Normans owned the place, and they spoke French for centuries. Elite speech was basically french for a long, long time, and the commoners learned to use French words for the elite stuff they didn’t have native words for.

    French kept being the prestige language in Europe for centuries too, which added for the prestige of using French words.

    The English take care of the animals (cows, pigs, sheep) and the French eat them (beef, pork, mutton).

    It’s collateral damage from the server upgrade here.
