Cock Brought from a Distance

From Henry George’s Protection or Free Trade, published in 1940. Ten years earlier “President” Trump’s mother had immigrated from Scotland. His father was born in America to German immigrants.

It has long been known that to obtain the best crops the farmer should not seed with the seeds grown in his own fields, but with seed brought from afar. The strain of domestic animals seems always improved by imported stock, even poultry-breeders finding it best to sell the male birds they raise and supply their places with cocks brought from a distance. Whether or not the same law holds true with regard to the physical part of man, it is certain that the admixture of peoples produces stimulating mental effects. Prejudices are warn down, wits are sharpened, language enriched, habits and customs brought to the test of comparison and new ideas enkindled. The most progressive peoples, if not always of mixed blood, have always been the peoples who came most in contact with and learned most from others.

"Bad Attitudes" is a gift. Every time I visit I learn something I hadn't known or understand something in a way I had not previously.

What with everything that's going on, and the ephemeral nature of life, I want to express my appreciation now, before it all goes away, as it inevitably will.

Stay well.
