Who Said This?

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 06:10:42 +0000

While Government is an excellent machine to protect monopoly, has it ever been able to protect us against ill-disposed persons? … In establishing prisons into which multitudes of men, women, and children are thrown for a time in order to come forth infinitely worse than when they went in, does not the State maintain nurseries […]

Cog in the Machine

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 07:27:17 +0000

When I lived in Colorado Springs as a child, my mother always wanted to take me on the Cog Railway up to the summit of Pikes Peak, but we were never able to afford it. I had always hoped to go back some day and take the trip. Alas, now I see that the Cog […]

Feel the Berne

Under the Berne Convention, copyright terms last for 50 years after the death of the author. But “The Death of the Author” appeared in 1967. So that means that all Berne copyrights ended forever in 2017. Hurray!

All a Board

Longtime readers of this blog will no doubt be stunned to learn that I’m very fond of San Diego, my old hometown (well, one of my old hometowns). I’m likewise very fond of this video:

Never Merry When I Hear Sweet Music

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 19:18:26 +0000

It used to be a common practice for soundtracks to play “funny” music in certain scenes to, I guess, let the audience know that something funny was happening. Some examples: at 1:55-2:08 in this clip from To Have and Have Not (1944); at 1:58-2:22 and 7:01-7:17 of these clips from the original 1960s Star Trek; […]

Left-Libertarians at Libertopia

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 19:33:50 +0000

[cross-posted at C4SS and BHL] Next month (3-6 May) in San Diego I’ll be speaking at the Libertopia conference, which is back after several years’ hiatus. Here’s my topic and abstract: Hoppean Libertarianism as Right-Wing Tribalism: A Critique Roderick T. Long One of the main conduits by which many libertarians in recent years have been […]

Never a Note, Never a Trill

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 05:29:45 +0000

A tantalising bonus scene from Star Trek: Discovery has been released. I have no idea why this wasn’t included in the final episode; it’s pretty significant for the plot, and it would have made a great post-credits scene for the season finale (and given that the show’s on a streaming service, they’re a bit more […]
