   Normally I don't do memes, but well, normally I'm not "tagged" specifically to do them. Even so, I'm not liable to do them, but I think I owed hereticxxii a blogfavour.

   Mercilessly tagged by hereticxxii.

Open the book closest to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.

Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there.

Then, you get to pass the Bookworm Award on to 5 people of your choice!

   Well, my bookshelf is immediately to my right, and the third shelf is about eye level, so as you can see here that puts me eye to eye with Globalization and the Challenges of a New Century by, well, a bunch of people.

Vlahos says, "An ideology that challenges us may not take famliar form, like the old Nazis or Commies. It may not even engage us initially in ways that fit old threat markings." Ven Crevald concludes, "Armed conflict will be waged by men on earth, not robots in space. It will have more in common with the struggles of primitive tribes than with large-scale conventional war." [...]* re-primitized man: warrior societies operating at a time of unprecedented resource scarcity and planetary overcrowding.

* one boring sentence omitted

So there you have it. The challenges of the next century apparently consist of how we're going to launch a raid on the next neighbourhood over. Those bastards have it coming! ;D

And now, I'm NOT going to tag anyone further. I hate memes.
