Happy Sunday, friends! The weather in Louisiana has settled down to be beautiful at least for a few days, so my main Something on Sunday thing is that I can finally walk places again. It fulfills so many needs at once! I get my exercise! I have time to think quietly! The sun blondes my hair! It’s the best!
The other thing is that I’ve started rewatching Black Sails with my sister, and I noticed in the pilot that Miranda and Flint have this book on their shelves.
(I had never heard of this fellow Grotius.)
Well not TWO DAYS LATER, I was reading this book called Inventing Human Rights, and who do you suppose was among the earliest writers to conceive of the notion that all humans had a set of natural rights? (If it’s not Grotius this story sucks.) HUGO GROTIUS!
All roads lead to Black Sails is what I’m saying, and that’s my other Something on Sunday. Link up yours below!
