Anglo saxon people discussion

Andrew C (✔): Dear Mitt Romney: welcome to Britain! We have a few tips for a pleasant stay | Oliver Burkeman | Comment is free | -
Comment: "First things first: the statistical probability is that any given member of the public you meet while in Britain will be British. This should make things considerably easier when it comes to your penchant for guessing randomly, and frequently wrongly, the nationalities of people you encounter. ("His favourite guess for nationality is French-Canadian.")"
"Your weird and strongly held religious beliefs may provoke concern from those in Britain who are wary of the American-style incursion of religion into civic life. Among those who may raise this issue are Church of England bishops who automatically get a seat in the House of Lords and reporters from Britain's leading radio news programme which features a daily sermon. "
"Above all, it's essential for any American politician visiting Britain to refer interminably to the "special relationship", which, for the duration of your visit, you must pretend to believe is a thing. In return, you can expect British politicians to praise "the idea of America" and its "optimistic spirit". Even if elected president, you will never be required to provide any concrete demonstration of the special relationship, and if anyone in Britain starts making trouble by suggesting that you should, you can just extradite them or something."
Indeed (such as the "eat the baked goods in a strange fashion" one). But by the time I realized that, I'd already shared most of the piece.

Steven Perez: Romney Adviser: Obama Doesn't Understand Our 'Anglo-Saxon Heritage':
Comment: Yeah, I'll bet Obama doesn't understand the ol' Anglo-Saxon thing. What with his mom being white and all.
"Historical research shows that US President-elect Barack Obama is descended from the Pilgrim Fathers who left the Dutch town of Leiden in 1620 to found the Plymouth colony in Massachusetts."
The continuing irony here is that for many in the black community, Obama's maternal heritage means he's "not black enough." Which, combined with the story topic, just makes me even sadder. Edit: or laugh, depending on my mood.
"An adviser to Mitt Romney told" - so familiar sentence, sounds like I have heard a similar sentence almost a million times in our Iranian state media for attacking the so called evil enemies

Victor Ganata: Random thought: Is there a direct connection between the ancient concept of weregild and modern day wrongful death torts?
Comment: It seems to stem from the same thought process, even if it isn't. You want to make sure that it is painful enough for the perpetrator that others may trod more carefully, and it compensates the family for a loss that should not have happened.
Weregild was part of Salic Law. It was actually instituted to prevent revenge killing and blood feuds, which was the original do-it-yourself style of justice.
When I read about it in anglo-saxon era england history it didn't seem very effective at preventing either.
Well, the Anglo-Saxons weren't Franks. It probably works a lot better when you have a strong centralized government like the Merovingians or the Carolingians than it does with a heptarchy or an occupying force like the Danelaw.
They weren't yet :-) Since weregild is a system independent of the government, I'm not sure how it being strong or not mattered.
Salic Law was dependent on the government, though. I think it goes without saying that without a sufficiently strong government, you can't really have the rule of law, regardless of what that law is.
The Anglo-Saxon institutions were stronger than our Norman conquerors would have you believe ;) And wergild was formalised in Anglo-Saxon law codes- some of which were likely influenced by Frankish ideas.
But, regardless of historical context or successful implementation (or lack thereof) the idea of paying with money rather than with your life (and the lives of your relatives) does seem to have the potential of decreasing the body count. It's likely that it didn't really, but that's more a consequence of failing to enforce the law, rather than an inherent failure in the idea itself.
True. And it's not as if we have reliable data ;) 'Anglo-Saxon Chronicle: 898- The All Witangemoot Committee on Violence Report was issued today...'
Commutation of that nature is pretty old, though. Like, Babylonian old :) Random thought- is corporate manslaughter legislation a reverse of this trend?

Jessie: Clipping the church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia -
Comment: "Clipping the church is an ancient custom that is traditionally held on Easter Monday or Shrove Tuesday in the United Kingdom. The word "clipping" is Anglo-Saxon in origin, and is derived from the word "clyppan", meaning "embrace" or "clasp".[1] Clipping the church involves either the church congregation or local children holding hands in an outward-facing ring around the church. Once the circle is completed onlookers will often cheer and sometimes hymns are sung. Often there is dancing. Following the ceremony a sermon is delivered in the church and there are sometimes refreshments.[2] Currently, there are only a few churches left in England that hold this ceremony."
Did it say what the purpose of it is? (Yes, I could look it up. But it's late and I don't want to go down the internet research rabbit hole.)
It doesn't say much besides " Yeclepping is an ancient term meaning ‘embracing’. It is thought to have originated from pagan times but Christians quite wisely have adopted this tradition to show their love for their church and the surrounding people"
I wonder if this has any links to Maypole? Couldn't find any link on my initial search, but found this interesting book: Dark Dorset Calendar Customs
