In preparation for the end of the world, or more likely, the end of my world, I am cleaning up my books, and finding a home for them. Some will wind up sent to Uncle Len, who will use them for burning in his shed, in an old 44 gallon oil drum. For warmth and light in winter, and maybe to keep the mossies at bay in summer. Some, I imagine, he will tear up, and put on the dirty cement floor, to keep his tootsies toasty in winter. I am pleased that great literature always finds a natural home.
So, what first to briefly note and throw out? Here is my copy of Alain de Benoist, Beyond Human Rights, (Arktos, London, 2011). De Benoist is a leading French New Right theorist, who likes being photographed with his cat. Me, I hate cats, being highly allergic to their fur which always seems to get everywhere, just like human rights.
