Anarchy in DC. Roderick, Austro-Athenian Empire (2011-06-01).

You Wanna Bet? Roderick, Austro-Athenian Empire (2011-05-16).
Betting is the replacement for dueling. It’s not a perfect replacement, of course. (Nothing is a perfect replacement for anything else.) It only applies in certain cases. But what it has in common with dueling is the challenge either to back up one’s opinion or retract it. In that sense,...(Linked Tuesday 2011-05-17.)

Spoilage ensues: Asgard and Jotunheim have been at (uneasy) peace for a thousand years. Then some frost giants slip into Asgard to steal a Frostee MacGuffin, but after whacking a couple of guards they are killed by Odin’s automated defenses. Thor wants to go to Jotunheim to smash all the...(Linked Tuesday 2011-05-17.)
28 Years Later; or Hey Hey Goodbye. Roderick, Austro-Athenian Empire (2011-05-17).

The Paradox of Property. Roderick, Austro-Athenian Empire (2011-05-05).
Nonlibertarians are often puzzled as to why libertarians accept such strong property rights claims (sometimes called “absolute” property rights, though I’ve never figured out what “absolute” is supposed to mean in this context). The answer I’m going to give here is one I’ve already offered elsewhere (see here and here),...(Linked Thursday 2011-05-05.)

TomTom Sold User Data to Police, Motorists Then Targeted With Speed Traps. John Gruber, Daring Fireball (2011-05-02).
Consumer Reports: Following reports that TomTom had sold traffic data collected from GPS device users to police who then used it to determine locations for speed traps, the company has issued a statement and video in an effort to appease angry customers. Shameful. ★(Linked Thursday 2011-05-05.)
Jon Stewart on the Photos of Osama bin Laden. John Gruber, Daring Fireball (2011-05-05).
Jon Stewart: Maybe we should always show pictures. Bin Laden, pictures of our wounded service people, pictures of maimed innocent civilians. We can only make decisions about war if we see what war actually is — and not as a video game where bodies quickly disappear leaving behind a shiny...(Linked Thursday 2011-05-05.)
On the Road to Nowhere With Johnson and Paul. Thomas L. Knapp, Center for a Stateless Society (2011-04-28).
Is it just me, or is the silly season of electoral politics — the presidential election cycle — arriving earlier and earlier in each successive four-year stretch? Last time around, it was nearly Memorial Day of the year preceding the election before pundits started speculating about when the obvious odd...(Linked Thursday 2011-05-05.)

Two Socialist Catechisms. Shawn P. Wilbur, Two-Gun Mutualism & the Golden Rule (2011-03-28).
I've been reading around Proudhon quite a bit lately, trying to establish contexts as a step towards further clarifying his ideas.

Greene and...(Linked Monday 2011-03-28.)
