Shameless Self-promotion Sunday #38

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 15 years ago, in 2009, on the World Wide Web.

It’s Sunday. Everybody get Shameless.

    Arthur Silber released the third part of what is turning out to be a masterful series. Check it out at: http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2009/02/ravages-of-tribalism-iii-learning-to.html

    Arthur has pioneered revolutionary discussion of parenting approaches! And to think he has to live in such poverty.

    Rad Geek, I suspect you’ve heard about this.


    Polite words fail me.

    I wrote another blog post about “progressives” and their love-hate relationship with the government when it comes to land use. On the one hand, the vision of the turn-of-the-century Progressives was a technocratic government that controlled and programmed land use and transportation. On the other hand, the choices that the government made led to the destruction of the relatively free-market mass transit systems that moved suburban and urban Americans, and was much more environmentally-friendly than the subsidized sprawl and car culture we have today.

    The part about reducing the need for abortion and responsible fatherhood suggests some kind of state promotion of conventional sexual values. I suppose you could read it as “passing out condoms too” though.

    Everything still suxors:


    BTW, I described the potential for abortion rights protection as a limited victory against theocracy, because Obama is going to expand faith based programs.

    It’s a good victory for individual rights, but it’s only limited in the context of the growth of a Christianist state in America.

    I just got out of Health class and couldn’t wait to share its contents on here. My teacher talked about avoiding people who could bring you down and whatnot. He mentioned those into drugs and illegial activities. I couldn’t help but laugh on the inside. I’d have no friends left, if I treated that advice seriously ( :

    We’re all counter-economists in some way or another!

    I have a question to ask of any remaining readers I have on here — I say that not in self-deprecation but out of knowledge of my lack of blog updates for awhile.

    How how much conviction do I come off as possessing? My speech teacher just told me I was lacking it — and I thought I sounded more vibrant then before.
