The on-line semi-intellectual journal of an oddball generalist.

For the 20th century, I now have outlines for the Levantine countries...Israel, Jordan, Syria, Paletinian territories, and Lebanon. Since these have assumed such great importance in the last 70 years or so, I've finally gotten around to a rough sketch.  I'm most of the way through Latin America in the 19th century: It hasn't been as big and obstacle as I feared. However, in order to get to more detail, I need to tet this broken down by periods, and I'm not through the 20th century yet.  


I've made steady progress in connecting areas of sociology including peoples of the world, nations, and communities, and social structure and change to particular nations.  but nothing really liberating or noteworthy has come up yet. I'm getting closer, though.


Institutions in general are now connected to the nations of Western Civilization, which is one marker of progress. For religion in general, I'm making progress through the Latin peoples, which will also be liberating, but I'm not quite there yet.

Modern history has now been applied to all the nations and peoples on the list, at least in a general sort of way. That means, of course, that I can now move on to something else.

The 20th century has been applied to Western Civilization, but there are a whole lot of nations that aren't Western, so it will be a little while yet before those are covered.  The 21st century is so far only applied to Anglic peoples.  I almost dread this part, because I know so little of Latin American history, especially in the last ten years or so, and I don't want to skim througn it too fast.  I've had my head in a bucket so I'm a bit short on what I know of detail of the last five years in this country.  Going back a bit further to the early 2000s, the late 20th century are areas where addition just doesn't go smoothly because of these hang-ups.  The 19th century is another horror show with wars, revolutions, and petty dictators scattered all over Latin America that it's going to take a week or few to even halfway sort out. Going back to classical and medieval history means tackling the Middle East.

Well, there's always the sociology section for consolation, right? Not really. Oriental peoples are up next, and couple of weeks back, I had addition of communities reach a critical point to provoke division of China. I set that aside, since it involved creating a bunch of stub pages for provinces of China, and then grouping them into a few regions as I've done for the United States. Now it's time to go back and finish that job.  Shortly behind it is making sure that nations are connected to other peoples, and it's again, Asiatic nations that are up next.  And then there is setting up cross-connections among nations, which puts me back into Latin America.  Somehow, I'm just not quite up to studying Western Civilization any more this week. The project of adding external links to cities and beginnint to apply social structure and change is going, again, to Asia.


Well, what about the institutions, which have been nagging me for years now? That's right, those are knocking on Asia, and if I get  more specific and look at religion, there's Latin America again.


So that's what's coming up. Where would you like to go?
