Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 5 of Alan Macfarlane’s vital 1978 book, The Origins of English Individualism:

[A] central and basic feature of English social structure has for a long time been the stress on the rights and privileges of the individual as against the wider group or the State.

DBx: I fear that the English, made hysterical by Covid Derangement Syndrome, abandoned this central feature of their social structure in 2020. Indescribably sad. Immeasurably tragic.
