I had to take not one but two naps today; that should tell you enough about how my day has been. I did manage to run almost three miles and read a hundred pages of The Dawn of Everything, a new History book. The girls are winding down and I’m trying to make sure I get to bed at a decent hour tonight.
TDoE is actually a really good tome of potential source material for POLISdao. I had been looking to the Iroquois Confederation for some inspiration to set the tone for the dao’s constitution, and TDoE’s early chapters are spent describing the (native) American reaction to European society. Apparently they did not like it, and some of the more egalitarian ideas that came out of the Enlightenment may have been cross-pollinated from these peoples. It’s an interesting book in so many ways, but it’s rather thick and I’m reading quickly. This is the type of book that I should re-read and footnote. My own copy, not the library’s.
