Thompson BS: Folk wisdom 2022 (145* d) RE: BS: Folk wisdom 2022 28 Dec 21


Oh, love that! Though sometimes patriotism is the resistance of the oppressed.
Went out yesterday to buy a second-last Christmas present: Shashi Tharoor's new book, Inglorious Empire, about Britain's centuries-long asset-stripping of India, and was annoyed yet pleased to find that it had sold out.
(Fact from the book: at the beginning of the 17th century, India had 27% of world trade; by the time the British left, it had 3%… resistance was necessary to remove this imperial leech.)
