<li><p><a href="">Seeing Like a State. Roderick, <cite>Austro-Athenian Empire</cite> (2010-07-03)</a>. <q>I was just watching part of a Congressional presentation on C-Span honouring the slaves who built the u.s. capitol – not by making restitution to their heirs, of course, but by setting up some sort of plaque. What especially bugged me was the speakers’ continual references to expressing “thanks” and...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Sunday 2010-07-04.)</em></p></li>
<li><p><a href="">July 4 thoughts. Thoreau, <cite>Unqualified Offerings</cite> (2010-07-03)</a>. <q>By Thoreau First, I should preface this by saying that I just went through a DUI checkpoint.  A dozen cops standing around at a low-traffic intersection, and I’ll bet that a lot of them are collecting overtime for this.  Interestingly, he didn’t ask me “Have  you had anything to drink...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Sunday 2010-07-04.)</em></p></li>

<li><p><a href="">Homeland Security Works For Disney Now? Announces Shut Down Of Movie Sites At Disney. Mike Masnick, <cite>Techdirt</cite> (2010-06-30)</a>. <q>Well, here we go. Remember how, a few months back, we noted how odd it was that the Justice Department (which, of course, employs many former RIAA/MPAA/BSA lawyers) was designating a special task force to fight copyright infringement? After all, copyright infringement is mostly a civil issue, between two private...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Sunday 2010-07-04.)</em></p></li>
<li><p><a href="">Sumner Time Blues. Roderick, <cite>Austro-Athenian Empire</cite> (2010-07-04)</a>. <q>William Graham Sumner said lots of things I like. (See, for example, his “Conquest of the United States by Spain.”) The following (which I apparently transcribed a couple of decades ago and just came across today) isn’t one of them: [H]ow are we to appreciate the work of the Constitution-makers?...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Sunday 2010-07-04.)</em></p></li>

<li><p><a href="">More on Immigration. Sheldon Richman, <cite>Free Association</cite> (2010-07-03)</a>. <q>I'm sick of all the pro-immigration articles showing how good immigrants can be for us. It's not that the arguments are wrong. They're just not terribly relevant to the essential issue -- the freedom of people to move without permission, unmolested by governments or private individuals. Emphasizing how good immigration...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Monday 2010-07-05.)</em></p></li>
<li><p><a href="">The Political Animal. <cite>Cafe Hayek</cite> (2010-07-05)</a>. <q>Here’s a letter to DC news-radio station WTOP: In this morning’s 6 am hour, your Capitol Hill reporter, Dave McConnell, excused Sen. Robert Byrd’s long-ago active membership in the KKK as simply being “something that had to be done in West Virginia back then to get ahead in politics.” No...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Monday 2010-07-05.)</em></p></li>

<li><p><a href="">Let 560 Nations Bloom – Within the Boundaries of the U.S. flowidealism, <cite>Let A Thousand Nations Bloom</cite> (2010-07-02)</a>. <q>This post by Michael Strong is part of Secession Week 2010: Federalism and Secession Arguably the simplist and most immediate path for “Letting a Thousand Nations Bloom” is to support tribal sovereignty movements around the world, especially in the Common Law nations of the Anglosphere like the U.S.  Other colonialist European...</q> <em style="font-size: smaller">(Linked Monday 2010-07-05.)</em></p></li>
