THOUGHT: Most English people today would benefit greatly from learning a first language
The Cardboard Enemy
Two recent letters have helped to make clear a concept often referred to but never, we think, explicitly expounded. We therefore join them together to make a single section entitled The Cardboard Enemy. We hope you find it useful. There are also new letters in the Letterbox.
Normal Service Resumed
Recent "road works" appear to be completed so we should have no more interruptions in the service and a faster, sleeker server to boot - if one does boot a server. We continue with our programme of reissuing some valuable older material - we call your attention to the current Romanticism piece - as well as new material. Oh and do take a look at the Letterbox.
A New Look for the Secession Site
Friends familiar with this site will notice that things have changed a little. We are growing, you see. Until now this first page has contained a more or less complete index to the site. It was the introductory page contents list and navigation centre all rolled into one.
As more material is added this scheme becomes impossible. From now on, this, our "front page" will be used for news and "editorials" together with a list of the newer essays on the site (the newest at the top). The old front page will now become our Reception Centre, at which all new visitors are recommended to begin their journey. This will have the introductory editorial together with a list of introductory essays on Secessionist concepts. Soon we shall add a general Contents Page, from which all material on the site can be found. If you have ever wondered why there is an item called "Contents" on the bar at the bottom of each essay which when clicked leads nowhere, it is because we had planned this Contents Page from the beginning. Soon you will be able to go there. So you see - we don't just make it all up as we go along!
