I am interested in history, especially in cultural, military, and political areas. On DA I am especially focused on creating uniform depictions for the group PIXEL-ARCHIVES.

I will talk with anyone and seek to have constructive conversation with anyone that I may be interested in conversing with. That does not mean that I necessarily agree with them though.

I have created artwork involving quotes of historically significant people or uniform depictions of historically significant people. My creation of such artwork does not mean that I necessarily agree with the person's view but that I regard it as significant or unique that deserves attention.

I will allow my works to be included in any group that may have an interest in having them so that attention is brought to them. However inclusion of my works in any politically oriented group does not mean that I either endorse or oppose the politics or other beliefs of the group about which the content is about.

When I add quotes from historical figures it does not necessarily mean I agree with them but that I regard them as historically significant to the topic they are on.

RULES ON COMMENTING:

I will respond to constructive criticism. I will not respond to people being hostile with the content of their posts being mainly petty insults and character assassination with little constructive criticism.

Theodore Roosevelt - the arena
Former American President Theodore Roosevelt during a speech at the Sorbonne in Paris, France in 1910 shortly after his second term as President ended in 1909.

While his statement may come across as exaggerated, in that it seems when taken literally to reject all critics of politicians altogether, more likely he is meaning unqualified criticisms by people who do not understand how politics works and who prefer to criticize from outside of the political arena rather than having gone into it and then develop criticisms from their experience within the arena.

The Myst game series, and particularly the original Myst and Riven have remained my favourite computer games that my brother and I were fascinated by in the gameplay, and the games still stand out today as an interesting in breaking away from the more common computer games often based in combat, sports, and war. In these games the player explored strange worlds with puzzles needed to solve to advance in the game. Below is a video that shows the history of the Myst game series including the pre-Myst games made by the Rand brothers that influenced Myst as well as the limitations they had to overcome to create the games.


Theodore Roosevelt - how republics fall
Quote of American President Theodore Roosevelt in a speech arguing that republics have fallen when they have completely yielded themselves to the explicit service of one class and warns that this could happen in the United States. Avoiding class conflict was an important part of the politics of the Roman Republic that deliberately sought to avoid class conflict by giving the aristocracy and the common people legislative chambers and the need for these chambers to reach agreement with each other to pass laws. Roosevelt saw the problem as manifesting itself in the US with an extremely wealthy upper class seeking to protect its interests while an impoverished lower class frustrated with the power of the upper class were at risk of being drawn into the class conflict politics promoted on the radical left. Roosevelt as Vice-President saw the effects of this angst explode in 1901 with an anarchist assassinating American President William McKinley resulting in Roosevelt becoming President.

Roosevelt was a self-described progressive conservative and populist, in the past the words "progressivism" and "progressive" had a broader meaning in the Western world than they currently do as typically referring to left-of-centre politics, in the past there were right-wing movements that identified as progressive and supported forms of social welfare to help the poor during hard economic times in order to insure that society would not become so divided between the rich and poor that social unrest would erupt and in turn risk allowing radicals to exploit this. One such example was British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli and followers of his One Nation conservatism. For years he was a member of the Republican Party of the United States but later left the party to found the Progressive Party of the United States.

Proud of my Shitholean ancestry
This is in response to Trump's "shithole" countries remark, look it up if you have not. While I never liked Trump I tried to patient with him to give him the benefit of the doubt and the possibility to prove my concerns wrong unlike many people who were all-out against him from the beginning, I criticized people who jumped for calls to impeach him the day he entered office, I thought people were too eager to impose every negative label they could on him, but this last pathetic comment on "shithole" countries was just too stupid for me to tolerate.

The thing that's so stupid about this is that if he had of taken just one moment to think of a way to say the same thing in a different way, there would have been no P.R. crises. He could have said "We need to focus immigration to be from stable countries and no longer from countries with out-of-control problems". Do I think the countries Trump mentioned can legitimately seen as "shitholes"? Yes, one country in particular that he mentioned - Haiti - has been in terrible shape for a long time with little hope for recovery any time soon. I am not saying the US should just accept anybody from these countries he mentioned wanting to immigrate to the US, immigration should be chosen on a merit basis and if this merit basis means no one from a very-unstable country is chosen to immigrate in a year then I'm okay with that but people should not excluded merely based on crass generalizations of countries and their populations. My main point is that the President of the United States has a duty to represent his country on the international stage and should be able to try even the least to be more careful in what he says.

While I am not American, as a person with Irish heritage I know I speak for Americans of old Irish roots when I say that my ancestors came to Canada from a "shithole" country as Trump would put it that had famines and immense poverty, and for a time Irish heritage people were treated as lower in value than English or Scottish heritage people in Canada similar to in the United States.

People from "shithole" countries facing terrible conditions can be the most determined, hard-working, and grateful immigrants because of having to live through and overcome those conditions. I am proud of my Shitholean ancestors who moved to Canada and made something for themselves here, and so should fellow people of Shitholean ancestry in the United States.

I think you may have invited my Maajid Nawaz picture "Ideas vs People" to an Egyptian History group. I declined it simply because Nawaz is of Pakistani origin (he was born in Britain).

Oh, that was ignorance of my part, I thought from what I heard that he was Egyptian as I remember hearing that he was in Egypt at the time in his life when he had been in an Islamic fundamentalist terrorist group.

That's true. He details it in his book "Radical" which I highly recommend. My short review: www.goodreads.com/review/show/…
