Shameless Self-promotion Sunday #34

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 13 years ago, in 2009, on the World Wide Web.

It’s Sunday. Time to get as shameless as you wanna be.

What have you been up to in the past week? Write anything? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

    I took a break from writing about economic organization to discuss hitmen of all things. Why does this topic keep coming up?

    I would be curious to hear from any Aristotelian supply-side ethicists as to whether or not my conception of the problem “smells of consequentialism”. I’m hoping to either find a link or understand what prevents it from being compatible.

    I wrote about fiction that I’m writing. http://darianworden.com/blog/?p=401 And now I’m posting my own self-promotion on your blog. And it isn’t even Sunday anymore where I live. Shameless!

    I hope to finally make some improvements to the NJ Alliance of the Libertarian Left site (nj.libertarianleft.org) this week.

    Looks like war is the health of the state in Israel too. The current majority party is Kadmia. Their platform reads:

    The Israeli nation has a national and historic right to the whole of Israel. However, in order to maintain a Jewish majority, part of the Land of Israel must be given up to maintain a Jewish and democratic state.

    Israel shall remain a Jewish state and homeland. Jewish majority in Israel will be preserved by territorial concessions to Palestinians.

    Jerusalem and large settlement blocks in the West Bank will be kept under Israeli control.

    The Israeli national agenda to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and achieve two states for two nations will be the road map. It will be carried out in stages: dismantling terror organizations, collecting firearms, implementing security reforms in the Palestinian Authority, and preventing incitement. At the end of the process, a demilitarized Palestinian state devoid of terror will be established.

    Israel’s political system will be modified to ensure stability. One possibility to achieve this goal would be to hold primary, regional and personal elections to the Knesset and the Prime Minister’s office.

    Kadima would not rule out a future coalition partnership with any Israeli political party or person.

    promoting equality for minorities

    negative income tax and national pension

    increasing social security benefits and national health insurance

    civil marriage

    reform of police


    They seem a bit on the hawkish side. The left-right spectrum in Israel is a subject I am not an expert on though.

    Who was the guy that Aster said was no different from the Islamists? Kahane? Wikipediaed him below:

    Conservative columinist wants you to be “gritter” i.e. more willing to kill Muslims.

    At this point, I’d be surprised if the U.S regime tried to expand the war into Pakistan. The Bushies didn’t attack Iran when they had the chance. I suspect the folks in high places may have reached the point where they understand neither public opinion nor the U.S. economy nor the U.S. military will tolerate much more military expansionism. I’d expect Obama to be more Bill Clinton than George W Bush-lots of little piss ant imperialisms (Kosovo, Haiti, Serbia, Sudan) that Joe Sixpack American barely notices as opposed to larger imperial expeditions like Iraq.

    Of course, more 9-11s could push the country towards more militarism, but I don’t think the U.S. would come out that well if things went that way.
