I know what happened to yesterday. I was tired
and exhausted from hours spent at the Fulfillment Center, or The
Nightmare Before Christmas, as I am inclined to think of it.
I was going to talk about William Forster Lloyd. A Victorian
political economist, who looked at another phenomenon which is
"the more you try to squeeze out of something the less rewarding the
effort, or expense, of the squeezing becomes," and William Forster
Lloyd gave this phenomenon the very grand title of Diminishing Marginal
And I was going to talk to you about the English Wool
Trade's political power, as it succeeded in the enclosure of common land,
which led to a disgruntlement of landless English peasants which became
Kett's Rebellion of 1549. It was during the reign of Edward VI, who
came to the thrown at the age of nine. Then I was going to make some
extraordinarily pompous remark which explains why the Green Party of the
United Kingdom remembers both Kett's Rebellion and William Forster Lloyd.
