Three Things Thursday

1. Historical fact: The Golden Age of Ireland took place during what historians call "the Dark Ages".  I can only presume no Irish historians were consulted when this term was adopted.

2. So what are future historians going to call the current era?  I'm going to be honest and say that I think the popular term "post-modern" is dumb.  I doubt the term will still be in use two hundred years from now.

3. Also, what's up with progressivism?  I mean, how has that ideology lasted more than five years?  After all, if you're a true progressivist, then you have to reject all past progressivists for being "in the past".
