Am re-reading The Hobbit. Good book, I really like it. But how Jackson butchered it in his movie version. Bizarre.

About 2/3 of the way through Anthony Trollope's Barchester Towers and so far so good. He was about as prolific a novelist as "Sir" Walter Scott but not nearly as well known.

Isn't that book mostly fiction? Protestant (Puritan?) propaganda? Jews, christian fanatics, and Marxists are always perfectly willing to lie for the cause.

[T]he number of Jews killed there was 800,000,000.... [T]he Talmud makes it all clear by informing us that the blood of the holocausted Jews ran to the sea in a huge tidal wave that swept boulders in its path and was so deep that it reached the nostrils of the Romans' horses.

Quote:
The most appalling stories, the most horrible lies, of "southern barbarity," were invented, and published in a hundred newspapers, which were degraded to mere organs of the most profligate sensation and disgusting falsehood. ... an army of correspondents, of such wretches as will blaspheme for bread, kept busy at the vile work of manufacturing instances of southern cruelty. Such were and are the appliances relied upon to get up and keep on the war for Abolition and disunion.
Quote:
The Boston Courier thus paints the face of Lincolnism:

"The Administration has two methods of dealing with those who oppose its plans. The first is, if possible, to intimidate them into silence by threats, and, whenever they can, by the practice of illegal persecution and military terrorism. The second, applied to those who know their rights as citizens, and dare to assert them, is, to defame and abuse them through a subsidized press, to ruin them by false and malicious slanders, so cunningly worded as to be within the law, and so numerous as to defy contradiction." --- The Old Guard, September 1863, p. 239
