Concern About Police Secrecy = “Tilting at Windmills”? Radley Balko, Hit & Run (2010-09-01).
My column this week was about the continuing secrecy of Virginia’s largest police departments and the way the state’s law enforcement community is opposing efforts to make the departments even marginally more transparent. The journalist sounding the alarm about all of this is Michael Pope, who writes for Northern Virginia’s…(Linked Wednesday 2010-09-01.)
Can Preschoolers Think? cherylcline, der Blaustrumpf (2010-09-02).
As I've said before, the NYT often shows up The Onion in terms of laughs. This week, the NYT featured an unintentionally funny article about preschool depression accompanied by even funnier photos: Kiran didn't seem like the type of kid parents should worry about. "He was the easy one," his…(Linked Thursday 2010-09-02.)
Social Individualism and Solidarity. Darian Worden, Center for a Stateless Society (2010-08-26).
A functional libertarian political order will rise the strongest from fertile ground. To maximize individual liberty it is necessary to promote the best kind of individualism at all levels.

New Anarchist Platformist archive. Shawn P. Wilbur, Out of the Libertarian Labyrinth (2010-08-24).
Anarchism and the Platformist Tradition is a new archive with a nice collection of platformist texts, starting, naturally, with the 1926 Organisational Platform of the General Union of Anarchists (Draft), but including both prior and subsequent contributions to the platformist tradition.

This short piece by Emile Armand appeared in Horace Traubel’s The Conservator in 1910.

Some Hard Facts on Copyright. Kevin Carson, Center for a Stateless Society (2010-09-02).
I've referred to Nina Paley quite a bit in recent columns. Her song "Copying is Not Theft" and her Mimi and Eunice cartoons skewer the moral pretensions of the Copyright Nazis more effectively than just about anything I've seen. In a more serious vein, I just ran onto her interview…(Linked Thursday 2010-09-02.)

Few essays attracted as much attention from right-wing readers this summer as "America's Ruling Class—and the Perils of Revolution," an extended argument that an incestuous social set "rules uneasily over the majority of Americans." Written by Angelo Codevilla of the Claremont Institute and first published in The American Spectator, this…(Linked Friday 2010-09-03.)

Hollywood has long been recognized by the Global Cabal of Spinster Aunts as Ground Zero for American misogyny. Like everything that gurgles forth from that foul city, this Mad Men sensation that's sweeping the nation has many sicko antifeminist repercussions. Never heard of Mad Men?

HAMP Fails: Your Tax Money At Work. email@example.com (MontyB503), Portland Housing Blog (2010-06-21).
The Obama administration’s HAMP program has proven to be an exercise in futility, and largely a waste of taxpayer dollars as only about 30% of the 5.7 million borrowers who are 60 days delinquent are eligible for the program. Of those who are eligible for the program, less than 350,000…(Linked Tuesday 2010-06-29.)
