Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

In the winter of 1825-1826 Robert Owen and Robert McClure brought a large keel boat loaded with scientists, teachers, philosophers, writers and other learned people from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to New Harmony, Indiana. They traveled from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, down the Ohio river to the mouth of the Wabash river, and then up the Wabash to New Harmony. It was arguably the largest gathering of learned people to ever assemble on a single boat.

Philadelphia’s loss was New Harmony’s gain,  and neither city has ever been the same, since.

Robert Owen called it the BOAT LOAD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Speak out

Speak out AGAINST lying and adultery and Trump supporters question your patriotism.

Speak out in FAVOR of Christ’s teachings of love, tolerance and kindness to strangers and the evangelicals question your spirituality.

Speak out to SUPPORT succor for the poor and weak and  the Republicans call you a socialist commie maggot. 

When you speak out, don’t anticipate wide approval.

Please send me no money

 I see a trend.  Everyday, folks offer me advice on how to have a “better” life or how to save the world from ruin. What they have in common is they all want me to send them a check. 

God’s messenger always seems to say, that God’s message is to give God’s messenger money.

To counter that trend, I offer some priceless tips, completely free gratis from a certifiably old person.

American Exceptionalism

Donald Trump may be the master of lying directly into the face of contrary established fact, but he didn’t invent it.

Since the Vietnam war, reactionaries have peddled the myth of American exceptionalism. American exceptionalism is the theory, that our founders were divinely guided, and that America is …….

News, history, and opinion from New Harmony, Indiana

As we get older, our mental lists of friends and acquaintances contain more and more dead people. Maybe, that’s why old people see so many ghosts. I frequently see ghosts. Usually, they are in my head, but sometimes I bump into them on the street.

Poker involves math, psychology, patience, deviousness and well timed aggression. Poker is also an an equal opportunity game. At the poker table, no one cares, who your Daddy was, or who you rub shoulders with at happy hour. Poker tests character. If you are ruled by greed, animosity, prejudices, arrogance or impatience,  you will soon get your clock cleaned at poker. I love poker for all of those reasons.
