"I was attracted to anarchism as a young teenager, as soon as
I began to think about the world beyond a pretty narrow range, and haven't
seen much reason to revise those early attitudes since. I think it only
makes sense to seek out and identify structures of authority, hierarchy, and
domination in every aspect of life, and to challenge them; unless a
justification for them can be given, they are illegitimate, and should be
dismantled, to increase the scope of human freedom."
– Noam Chomsky, 1988, Language and Politics
How did the Celts, Americans and Australians get their names?
All three cultures received their current names within the last 500 years.
Here is a brief history of each culture, written by Mairéid (2003).
A light year is the distance light travels in a year's time at 186,000 miles a second. It's equivalent to 5,880 billion miles, i.e., just about six trillion miles.
And, each twinkling speck of light you will see in the sky is a star like our sun with the potential to be a solar system.
Our galaxy, the Milky Way (100,000 light years wide), has about 200 to 250 billion stars. It is estimated that there may be a trillion galaxies in our universe. The nearest large galaxy to us is Andromeda with 400 billion stars. To get to Andromeda from our galaxy, we would have to travel at the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second, for 2,200,000 years.
