Here is a perhaps persuasive comment on Humanities.
I recall King James' comment to the fanatic puritan presbyter folk who
wanted to do away with Henry VIII's *novus ordo. *He said, "What! No
Bishops? No Bishops, no King!"
So for Humanities, *What! No Humanities? No Civilization!*
In short, descent into the oubliette of a *novus ordo "ordurum..."*
