Albion's Seedlings

weblog on Anglosphere topics

Introducing the Albion's Seed weblog on December 6, 2004, Jim Bennett, author of The Anglosphere Challenge, wrote:

Blogeo Ergo Sum

My blog, and welcome to it!

This is the launch of Albion's Seedling, an occasional and entirely personal web log by James C. Bennett. This is to say, the blog has no affiliation with any other person or organization, including any of the organizations I am affiliated with. (If you're curious about those I do give links to them.) Its intent is to reflect personal opinion, give links to my various writings and other writings of interest, and whatever else I choose to do with it. I have no idea how frequently I'll be able to post; the whole thing is an experiment. But then the blogosphere is an experiment itself, so I guess that's appropriate.

About the Blog Name

Albion's Seedling is a reference to an important book, David Hackett Fischer's Albion's Seed. This book has had an enormous effect on my thinking and writing. People are only now beginning to think through the implications of this work. More about this book, and others that have influenced me, can be found in my on-line bibliography.

The on-line bibliography for The Anglosphere Challenge: Why the English Speaking Nations Will Lead the Way in the Twenty-First Century will be found at:

A fascinating commentary on books that influenced Bennett's development of the network commonwealth and Anglosphere concepts. -leif

The Explorers Foundation Glyphery is a collection containing indications of things that have to do with the emergence of a world fit for explorers, and of a people fit to inhabit such a world. We call this the emergence of freeorder. We intend that our work and the work of similar ventures will spread a conviction that such a world is the destiny of humanity, one hard fought for by a growing few over centuries. Such conviction will inspire an avalanche of events, in imagination, thought, and action that will make it so. —
