Good blog

And one that shares with me a link with the seventeenth century. Englands Freedome, Souldiers Rights. Tagline:

"I am by birth a free Commoner of England, and am thereby intailed or intituled unto an equall priviledge with your selfe, or the greatest men in England, unto the freedome and liberty of the Lawes of England." William Thompson, 14. of December, 1647
You're damned right, William.

The blogmeister left an excellent comment on this post, which is how I came to read his posts. I don't agree with everything, but then that's probably mutual. Check it out, though. Independent mind.

Aw shucks...

William Thompson and John Lilburne were no strangers, Lilburne posted bail for Thompson on one occasion (following his arrest for stabbing an army spy), and may have had a hand in the petition quoted in the tagline.
