Heretic, Tzela, see the Pantheon edit thread. Let's make sure we're all on the same page with respect to the edits.

    We are all on the same page as long we are talking about the actual dialogue in the graphic novel.

    This happens sometimes, no one knows why. Chat is on a separate server from TGL proper. Are you getting the "Oops" page?

For anyone interested, this should be shortly available in podcast. Fukuyama is debating Alexander Dugin on democracy: http://theagenda.tvo.org/episode/210573/big-minds-on-the-future-of-democracies

    I'm certainly willing to put old hostilities to one side and engage in an honest, focused, and charitable discussion of the value of democracy and its competitors. Because I don't think the moral foundations of liberal democracy are as strong as I'd like them to be, I sense that a genuinely constructive debate, for both sides, can be had.

    Now because I think that the NRx critique of democracy (and modernity generally, should you want to bring that in as well, which I'd like) frames the debate in a distinctive way, I'll ask that you initiate the thread with a statement of said critique. The terms in which democracy is typically justified are too broad for an opening post in defense of democracy to orient the discussion so as to make it appropriately responsive to NRx criticisms.

The Fate of the Universe as we know it hangs in the balance, or at least in the hands of Thumos. But I fear His hands may turn against fate. We shall see!

First day of tutoring: not bad. Only the office has no idea where to put me. I'm the first tutor they've ever had who teaches both English and math. :blink:

    It seems like the show will finish before the next book. After all they only envision 7 or 8 seasons. :(
