Hiber-Nation 118 -- Eugenics by G K Chesterton Part 2 Chapter 8 and 9

"Eugenics and Other Evils," by G.K. Chesterton, published in 1922.

Chapter 8 -- The End of the Household Gods:

"The only place where it is possible to find an echo of the mind of the English masses is either in conversation or in comic songs. The latter are obviously the more dubious; but they are the only things recorded and quotable that come anywhere near it."

Chapter 9 -- A Short Chapter:

"Round about the year 1913 Eugenics was turned from a fad to a fashion. Then, if I may so summarise the situation, the joke began in earnest. The organising mind which we have seen considering the problem of slum population, the popular material and the possibility of protests, felt that the time had come to open the campaign. ... But as a matter of fact this is not the first chapter but the last. And this must be a very short chapter, because the whole of this story was cut short. A very curious thing happened. England went to war. This would in itself have been a sufficiently irritating interruption in the early life of Eugenette, and in the early establishment of Eugenics. But a far more dreadful and disconcerting fact must be noted. With whom, alas, did England go to war? England went to war with the Superman in his native home."

The IDSL for December 11, 2010

Yet another IDSL, this one recorded while live-streaming in Second Life at my little jazz club there, Ours Ballroom.  (Technically, This Ballroom of Ours.)  Had a few tech flaws, but it's not too bad.  Again, all Ariel Publicity music.

Music Included:

Maria Dunn - The Peddler

The Juniper - The Juniper

Shalone - Potential Golddigger

Savio Rego - Chai Time

Davy Mooney - Maybe Tomorrow

Stephen Luke - The Devil Won't Think Twice

Still don't know how often these will come out, but so far, one a day.  :)

A quick, hacked-together version of The IDSL, using only tunes I got from Ariel Publicity.  Since my account there doesn't work anymore at the moment, I couldn't get to bio information, but now that I think about it, I may be able to get it from other sources for future shows.  How many shows, how often?  Who knows?  I barely got this one done.

Music includes:

Beth Bombara - Abandon Ship

Nicholas Howard - Mother

Maree McRae - Urgency

Nina Vox - So Sue Me

Dala - Lonely Girl

Kelly Richey - What in the World

I'll try to come up with links for alla those, wish me luck!  :)

Hiber-Nation 117 -- Eugenics by G K Chesterton Part 2 Chapter 7

"Eugenics and Other Evils," by G.K. Chesterton, published in 1922.

Chapter 7 -- The Transformation of Socialism:

"Socialism is one of the simplest ideas in the world. It has always puzzled me how there came to be so much bewilderment and misunderstanding and miserable mutual slander about it. At one time I agreed with Socialism, because it was simple. Now I disagree with Socialism, because it is too simple."

"Eugenics and Other Evils," by G.K. Chesterton, published in 1922.

Chapter 6 -- The Eclipse of Liberty:

"If such a thing as the Eugenic sociology had been suggested in the period from Fox to Gladstone, it would have been far more fiercely repudiated by the reformers than by the Conservatives."

Hiber-Nation 115 -- Eugenics by G K Chesterton Part 2 Chapter 5

"Eugenics and Other Evils," by G.K. Chesterton, published in 1922.

Chapter 5 --The Meanness of the Motive:

"Now, if any ask whether it be imaginable that an ordinary man of the wealthier type should analyse the problem or conceive the plan, the inhumanly far-seeing plan, as I have set it forth, the answer is: "Certainly not." Many rich employers are too generous to do such a thing; many are too stupid to know what they are doing."
