I recently received an odd email from the "Evolutionist Order." That in itself seems odd. The email was a long description of what steps this chap from England had been taking in pursuing the creation of a new political stream of thought. It was relatively articulate and I figured: 'Hey, it's my coffee break." So I went to the website and downloaded his e-book.

The book is like 800 pages, and no I haven't read it. Nevertheless it seems interesting - if only because of its idea (and the attractively designed website).

The content, on first glance, appears to appeal to left-leaning folk, so I figured I'd post the website and people could check it out.

Other than that, I'm interested in people's experiences with "new" political parties or ideologies. I myself, long ago, remember a wierd meeting of a Mel Hurtig cult.

Beamish appears to have passion and tremendous knowledge of political events, but he doesn't substantiate anything he writes by referring to the source of his information. His work will never be published by a reputable publisher, unless this is rectified. In addition, a lot of the information he presents (I only skimmed through), for example, with respect to Canadian politics, is already out-of-date. If he wants people to listen to his ideas, he has his work cut out for him. The idea that democracy has its flaws is not new by any stretch of the imagination. I'm not impressed. His work is like a badly-written, unsourced thesis. If a graduate student of mine handed this in to me, it would receive a failing grade. If he hands it to a publisher, they will send it straight back with an unqualified rejection.
