    Thanks, David. I'll find the bits you highlighted, and do what I can. Also going to get rid of Dr Conrad, and think of some more story for Julie and Oborski Sr.

Petrarch" "It is better to will the good than to know the truth." Interesting- do you agree or disagree?

    Why assume (the all too modern assumption) that there's a distinction between the good and the true?

Thought this was a great quote "If the substantive policy differences between Democrats and Republicans were gasoline, there wouldn't be enough of it to power an ant's go-kart for one lap around the inside of a Fruit Loop."

I just saw Interstellar: 'flawed masterpiece' seems appropriate. A solid 8.8/10.

    I remain curious to know what it is about the following Salon article that you sarcastically sneer at: http://www.salon.com/2014/11/06/watch_these_amazing_kids_perform_a_rap_about_transgender_acceptance/

    I know you replied to the question in the other status update where you raised the issue, but I didn't understand a word of your reply. Forgive me, if needed, for my lack of reading comprehension

Salon (the leftist website): "watch these adorable kids perform a rap about transgender acceptance." My life is complete.

    It's a package deal really, a matter of embeddedness- it's Lena Dunham, recursive victim mongering, two year prison sentences in the UK for trolling, transition to managerial state, etc.

Nice paper, Dr. P, and, so far as I'm aware, a truly novel argument. Going after those libertarians hammer and tong, and whip too, I see. :whip:

    I think you used the word "latter" wrong in one instance, but I'd need toi go back and check that to make sure.

Hobbit songs: Smaug on the water. Good god! The wit. Unimpressed? Well, someone posted that the Matrix is a film attempting to answer Thomas Nagel's immortal question: What is it like to be a battery? Zading!!

    Interesting. I have been called Siva (or Shiva) before. Is this turning out to be some sort of destiny-stuff going on?

So much for the post Cold War optimism- the Wilsonian template is looking bleaker by the day: http://www.fpri.org/articles/2014/10/reviving-global-democratic-momentum

    The author seems to use the terms democracy and capitalism interchangeably.

    Indeed, that's one (of several) big problems with the essay. He assumes democracy in America, whereas in fact here, candidates are bought and paid for with big money

Kai Teorn, is there any purpose to you being here, besides to peddle that abysmal book you're writing?

    he's never here. Just that his blog is linked to his account here at TGL, hence the constant updates in the "recent blog entries"
