Having spoken to someone yesterday that went - 
the John Lilburne birthday event at the weekend 
in London was dry, stuffy and way too academic
Nothing like the man at all - so brilliantly put 
across in NH Brailsford's The Levellers and the English Civil War
The obvious people to speak there - Veterans For 
Peace UK - who have an interest in and some, good 
knowledge of the levellers - were not invited 
despite their interest being specifically brought 
to the attention of the organisers.......

"The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic 
poison which alienates the possessor from the community" Carl Jung

Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered 
that shall not be revealed; and nothing hid that 
shall not be made known. What I tell you in 
darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye 
hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
