Americas other Civil War: Anti-Rent Wars of the 1830s and 1840s


From Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States
  • The Other Civil-War
A sheriff in the Hudson River Valley near Albany, New York, about to go into the hills in the fall of 1839 to collect back rents from tenants on the enormous Rensselaer estate, was handed a letter: ... the tenants have organized themselves into a body, and resolved not to pay any more rent until they can be redressed of their grievances. . . . The tenants now assume the right of doing to their landlord as he has for a long time done with them, viz: as they please. You need not think this to be children's play... . if you come out in your official capacity ... I would not pledge for your safe return. ... A Tenant.

When a deputy arrived in the farming area with writs demanding the rent, farmers suddenly appeared, asse... Show more...
 

Book Recommendation

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

#Surya #Siddhanta, 2 Million Years old #Book on #Astronomy

The Surya Siddhanta is an incredible testimony to the advanced thinking of the #ancient Indians. In this text, one can find the roots of trigonometry, as well as essential #mathematical #inventions, such as standard notation and the #decimal system. In addition, the text describes #gravity for a millennium before Sir Isaac Newton developed his theory in 1687. He explains the sidereal revolutions and how #planets move eastward. Accurately calculate the size and position of distant planets, the duration of a tropical year and the amount of time that has passed since its creation. Finally, in his discussion about how time passes at different speeds and under different circumstances, it contains the seeds of relativity.

Ray Bradbury: "Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off!" #Playboy interview, 1996

I foresaw political correctness 43 years ago. … whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. … I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is bullshit. You can't fool around with the dangerous notion of telling a university what to teach and what not to.

Urgent! Hot news: The brutal murder of the greatest Afro-Russian Poet!

The latest night of protests in New York City, Minneapolis, Denver, Phoenix and Columbus sparked by the death of the Great Afro-Russian Poet Alexander Pushkin at the hands of white rasist Georges d'Anthès was markedly calmer. Protesters destroy police property, tear a pages from his books and burn - to be blunt, all of them cannot read or write.

Festival and fireworks were dedicated to Pushkin's birthday, the 6th of June.

Pyotr Alexeyevich Kropotkin (/kroʊˈpɒtkɪn/; Russian: Пётр Алексе́евич Кропо́ткин; 9 December 1842 [a]– 8 February 1921) was a Russian activist, writer, revolutionary, scientist, economist, sociologist, historian, essayist, researcher, political scientist, biologist, geographer and philosopher who advocated anarcho-communism.

Born into an aristocratic land-owning family, he attended a military school and later served as an officer in Siberia, where he participated in several geological expeditions. He was imprisoned for his activism in 1874 and managed to escape two years later. He spent the next 41 years in exile in Switzerland, France (where he was imprisoned for almost four years) and in England. While in exile, Kropotkin... Show more...

Where women rule: the last matriarchy in Europe – in pictures | The Guardian

Big Heart, Strong Hands is the story of women on the isolated Estonian islands of Kihnu and Manija in the Baltic Sea. Often viewed as the last matriarchal society in Europe, the older women there take care of almost everything on land as their husbands travel the seas

Hi all,

About a year ago I set up my free website here [url=http://https://katyastiletti.wixsite.com/mybookbunker]https://katyastiletti.wixsite.com/mybookbunker[/url] but have been thinking of moving to another platform.

**Can anyone recommend an easy-to-set-up alternative secure website for the sale of ebooks? **

[Preview]Various Language Books # 1
OCTOBER 7, 2014 ~ MELODY

I received two packages today from Gmarket and Createspace!

[...]

The book I ordered from Createspace is a Toki Pona book. Toki Pona is a language that only has 120 words(not including borrowed words). Toki Pona was created in 2001 and can be learned for free on this site. They recently released a book version this summer, which I only found out about a week ago! I bought it right away and I hope I can learn this little language better now.

On this day, 21 January 1950, George Orwell, celebrated British author and socialist who fought against the fascists in the Spanish civil war and revolution, died aged 46.

Orwell fought with the anti-Stalinist, socialist POUM militia, and was shot in the neck by the fascists, while many Western journalists and authors just hung out in Barcelona hotels.

He vividly described the atmosphere in revolutionary Barcelona in his excellent account of the conflict, Homage to Catalonia:

"The Anarchists were still in virtual control of Catalonia and the revolution was still in full swing… It was the first time that I had ever been in a town where the working class was in the saddle… Waiters and shop-walkers looked you in the face and treated you as an equal. Servile and even ceremonial forms of speech had temporarily disappeared. Nobody said 'Senor' or 'Don' or even 'Usted'; everyone called everyone else 'Comrade'

How William #Gibson Keeps His #ScienceFiction Real


Source: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/12/16/how-william-gibson-keeps-his-science-fiction-real
Gibson first used the word “cyberspace” in 1981, in a short #story called “Burning Chrome.” He worked out the idea more fully in his first novel, “Neuromancer,” published in 1984, when he was thirty-six. Set in the mid-twenty-first century, “Neuromancer” follows a heist that unfolds partly in physical space and partly in “the matrix”—an #online realm.

you are either young and ignorant
Your main argument is insults. Apparently it is connected with your racist preferences - you are a privileged Westerner, and i am just a slavic resident of the territory of your raw material colony.
I'll save the Dalai Lama for last
Apparently, you have something in common with him. As with the CIA, which finances it. He also had a common interest with this man, the leader of the Aum Shinrikyo:
