The Aidan Project’s Manifesto


The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel

I wanted to update you all on the purpose of this blog, now that I have successfully navigated the choppy waters of the initial two weeks of the Aidan Project. I am sure, at this early, potentially non-committal stage, many other would-be bloggers have thrown in the towel at the sheer complexity of it all, not to mention the hard work. I feel the early machinations of a rhythm towards consistency. Here we go, onwards and upwards.

The Aidan Project blog looks at a multitude of topics, but history is the Project‘s raison d’être. I am an amateur student of history, but above all, a student of life. I am fascinated by, well, essentially everything. I will be discussing these variegated topics on the Aidan Project podcast, whilst I anticipate the blog itself to be more grounded in commentary of history and current events. Something for everyone, perhaps.

Above all, what I am seeking to achieve via text and audio – aside from content that could loosely be deemed as interesting – is healthy debate and analysis for the eager consumption of my fellow human beings. I am reassured, despite all of the madness of 2016, that there are many good people who have a passion for seeking a measure of understanding of this disconcertingly unhinged journey of ours. I want to explore, in a historical and progressive sense, where we have been, and attempt to rationalise where we might be going, even if the destination looks, at times, less than desirable.

New blog posts and podcast episodes can be found around once a week, but if you are seeking more regular content, you can follow me on Twitter for almost daily news and views.

Thank you for your interest in the Aidan Project. If you like what you see, please share and subscribe; inform others and bring them in to the conversation. If, on the contrary, you do not like what you see or hear within these pages, please tell me the source of your entitled displeasure. It is always wise to listen to the views of your detractors. I cannot claim to always be right, because even if I truly seek to be right in a moral sense (in an ethically questionable world), the book is never closed on the truth.
