    GDH Cole and Socialist Democracy, A W Wright, its an old book about an older time, I think that some of the appeal of socialism for me now is exactly that it is a bit retro, in truth I dont think that either socialism or capitalism are possible, other more basic things are that atrophied, but that itself is a kind of blessing too.

    Also I'm reading something from Pluto Press' "get political" range, Luxemburg's Socialism or barbarism, of all the marxists (I've got a deeply paradoxical relationship with Marx, marxism etc.) I think Luxemburg was less of an asshole and appreciated the importance of liberty, personal freedom, freedom per se.

    Stuff to read while my books on investing and building a portfolio get here in the post.

    I like his books, although I like his writing about cinema, film and writing more than I like most of his actual fiction writing itself. The changing of the seasons and hearts in atlantis though, those are real good material, everyone should read those before they are in their mid thirties, I didnt, I've a huge, huge list of books I wished that I'd read before I was twenty and they are part of that.

    I didnt start reading until relatively late in life, I think, I'm largely a self taught or auto didact learner, from my own reading, which I think is poor but a lot of other people think is fairly well read. There was a time when I obsessed about non-fiction and though it should be the greater part of anyone's reading if they wanted to learn about life, although I'm rethinking that, there's works of fiction which are greater guides, if you can just "get it", I admit that I dont always, reading for amusement sometimes its not easy.

    I've been trying to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I say "trying" because every time I pick up this book I find myself putting it back down again with a yawn. Sluggish pacing, oodles of telling instead of showing, and a boring premise.

    "Is It All In Your Head: True Stories of Imaginary Illness"

    Hippocrates is credited with the earliest descriptions of the illness known as hysteria. He considered it to be a disease of women originating in the womb. It was believed that the uterus was a mobile organ that traveled around the body causing disease; if the uterus was displaced upward or down, or irritated in any way, this could lead to delirium and collapse. Hysteria was not a coherent syndrome with well-defined symptoms; descriptions of it were vague and variable. Seizures were a common manifestation, but shortness of breath, loss of voice, neck pain, dizziness, and palpitations were also described. The ancient Greeks knew nothing of physiology and very little of anatomy, so they did not distinguish between psychosomatic illness from other disease. Hysteria was an organic illness, a disease of the body rather than the mind.
    A neurologist describes several very interesting case studies of psychosomatic illness; it's amazing how powerful the mind is.
    The best version of you is a libertarian. If you are not a libertarian, then you aren't trying hard enough.

    Finished Siddhartha last night for Philosophy class. I thought it was interesting: made none yet perfect sense at the same time. I didn't even intentionally mean that to be a reference.

    Default The Forsyte Saga, Property, and Love

    The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy, click on The Forsyte Saga - Complete by John Galsworthy - Free Ebook is well written literature, and tells us of Irene who, like many women, has to choose between a man of property and a man of art.

    I do encourage you to read the three books of The Forsyte Saga, but you might like a taste by clicking on YouTube

    We all like to have our cake and eat it too, so quite often women first choose their man of property, then they choose their artist to love.

    How have you chosen?
