My holiday blogging hiatus is over!
At Democracy in America: Evidence from Iowa that limited government isn’t really a priority for tea-party Republicans.
At Big Think: A free-associative mini-essay against resolutions and the tyranny of the annual.
And, from last week, my Bleeding Hearts Libertarians guest post on “Why I’m Not a Bleeding-Heart Libertarian.” Two of my Economist colleagues comment on aspects of this post, here and here.
Maybe that should be “last week.” Whatever…
I spent today reading The Soros Lectures by George Soros and The Science of Success by Charles G. Koch. I now know everything necessary to become insanely wealthy. Or at least to write a Big Think blog post comparing and contrasting the surprisingly similar philosophies of America’s most maligned philanthropists. The point of this post is to pressure myself to actually write about this so that in the off chance market-based management and the principle of reflexivity don’t soon make me one of the world’s wealthiest men, my day wasn’t a waste.
Tea Party vs. OWS: The psychology and ideology of responsibility
I put a lot into this one.
Scanlon on libertarianism and the value of liberty
A reply to Scanlon’s reply to my reply to his Boston Review piece.
I still intend to reply to Mazie, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.
Steven Mazie has posted a thoughtful reply to my post criticizing his Opinionator piece on Rawls and OWS. I’ll post a reply at Big Think later this evening.
