The volume of mail, due to the logistical reorganization, means that I will be working 7 days. However, it will work out that Saturday night ends just in time to get home, bathe/change, and get to church.
This is good.
Now, I'm still working away. I hope and pray that this year, Lord willing, I'll get a sufficiency of 'my stuff' (JBJ/ERH, etc.) onto http://chuckhartmanhistoryconductor.blogspot.com/, facebook notes, BHG archives, etc. that my bequeathing function will eventuate.
I've also been concentrating mostly on my network/heptad Rescue Team members. to each I have given authorization to see all my medical records and to remove me from an abusive situation. James 1:27
This is my main new effort. It's based on the Truce of God emerging from the forests that kept warring/raiding tribes apart @ A. D. 400. Then came the hermits, then the monks, then the sharecropping peasants onto the land cleared. Problem: The forests did not keep raiders out now. Solution: The Church had enough authority, from owning the land and from the science of when to plant, etc. that 'No fighting on the Lord's Day' became the fact. No fighting during Lent, no fighting .... and peace became something that had to be broken by declaration of war, etc.
Then knaves hanging around courts became knights (ERH says the Church did it) protecting the highways, made denser with traffic because the horse collar allowed 10x as much to be pulled.
400-1100, organization of land. 1100-1500, organization of skills (knights). 1500-1900, organization of markets. ... I say 1900-2000, world missions.
One, few, many, all. Hermits, monks, sharecroppers, Truce. Land, skills, markets, world.
And there are the Knights Hospitaller.
I substitute social relations for natural land. In our present situation, Barzun and Creveld among others say that our institutions, especially the nation-state, are failing because of lack of justice and a currency that will not avail.
But the various covenantal organizations are, in a primitive way, as the land was--the do keep some raiders out.
I hope and pray, eventually, Lord willing, that members of the Rescue Team will become Knights Of Helping Elderly Neighbors (acronymic pun intended).
This might be done with the small sums of money I have given each to hold for me. I'll never see it again, for it will be used to help with rescue, or, were I to die without needing it, for some other like person.
You, the Session of Christ the
You see, I must train the members to be wise a serpents and harmless as doves, for the present organizations, in far too many cases, do not pay attention to the covenantal organizations.
I'll give you and all you all copies of various documents.
Love in King Jesus,
PS: We must conduct history. History is those events that occur once for the first time, forever. There are very few. We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, that God has before ordained that we should walk in them. Also, when a man dies, great power is released into the field of time. Pentecost, tribal formation, etc. This current must be conducted, transformed, applied, etc. It's like Scipio Africanus, who wept at the surrender of
PPS: Later, knights will be sharecroppers of micro-economics, using my ex-money to start for micro lending, micro business start-ups. Perhaps ‘tithing’ on IPOs. 50% to the knight, the rest to capital increase, used for elderly ‘traveler’ protection.
I’m reading: Ceremonial Chemistry, 1434, Bloom on ‘Beast’, Accelerando. As I work, I think/pray, as the monks did ‘Ora et Labor,’ pray and work. This helps turn Liabilities into assets, the desert of forests and our mere anarchy. All monasteries were given land ‘en eremo,’ in the desert

Sir, make this the cornerstone of your understanding
of the universe and you
will understand that the universe begins with creation. And
it ends in incarnation, because that's the experience of every potent and creative
man in the world.
But you look outside and try to deduce by your little brain,
not by your experience of your heart how the world begins, and how it should be
run. You'll never
solve it, gentlemen. You'll remain a selfish, inarticulate
animal. If the spirit moves
you, you will see how simple
things are, gentlemen. Love begins, and hope
keeps you going, and faith. And in the end, your grandchildren
will bless you.
