Good morning Craig,

If nothing else, Sumner's discussion of the "Forgotten Man," speaks to the idea that in politics, issues never go away, they are just restated. One paragraph from the Wikipedia article about Sumner particularly struck me: "Although Sumner was a professor of political science, his actual involvement in politics was limited... In 1876, researching the contested presidential election, he went with a group to Louisiana to find "what kind of a presidential election they had that year." Sumner said that was his "whole experience in politics." From this experience, he concluded, "I did not know the rules of the game and did not want to learn."

There are just a couple of places, I would recommend changes.

(Section 120), 7:52.5 Text reads "A criminal is a man who instead of working with and for the society, has turned against it." You left out the "with." In the following sentence (8:02.5) the text reads "His punishment means that society rules him out of its membership..." You said "his membership."

(Section 125) 16:57.5 Text reads "Every protected industry has to plead..." You said "has to be pl'ed"

Regards,

soupy

Amazing!! I don't know how I managed to think it was by Yeats. I think I must have put it in a Yeats folder where I had been putting essays into a word processor.

Great work, and many thanks. I will have to edit the recording and upload again.

Thanks Peter :D

That was interesting.
Lady Macbeth is "unsexed;" Macbeth has forgot that he was born of woman; both are conformed to the image of devils; and the world of devils is suddenly revealed. But how shall this be conveyed and made palpable? In order that a new world may step in, this world must for a time disappear.
One errror noted.

8:28 forgot to say end footnote

Thanks for the correction Peter :D

I liked the footnote: instead of saying "sympathy with another," many writers adopt the monstrous barbarism of "sympathy for another

PLOK
