The Historovox Complex — Crooked Timber

http://crookedtimber.org/2019/02/20/the-historovox-complex/

Interesting thoughts. Here’s one:

«Everyone knows and cites Orwell’s famous adage: “To see what is front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” Less cited is what follows: “One thing that helps toward it is to keep a diary, or, at any rate, to keep some kind of record of one’s opinions about important events. Otherwise, when some particularly absurd belief is exploded by events, one may simply forget that one ever held it.”»

I wonder what he would have thought of blogging (without going back later and deleting embarrassing stuff).
